Expressway Heights (from the series Insomnia: Hotel Noir)
I am in the middle of a bunch of multi-tasking and I am afraid that I am not getting anything accomplished. So I have decided to take first things first. One of the first things is to follow up and complete the artistic statements for a number of my series that are in progress. My book dummy for Bad Trip – Sad Trip will just have to wait.
Thus I just updated my artistic statement for Insomnia: Hotel Noir on my web site. I was pretty sure of what I wanted to accomplish with this series and I had started writing some notes to add to the artistic statement that I have posted. Then I left the notes for this and the other series in the back of the seat of the plane when I landed in Shanghai earlier this month.
But I had spent the neccessary time to reconsider and reflect, thus I needed to make just a few adjustments to the my artistic statement, which was all that I needed to do. Now over the next couple of days, to write my intent for the series A Sideways Glance and Transitional Seam. I may also complete the statement for my project Ethereal Images as well, we’ll see.
The nice thing about my going through this exercise is that I may have also discovered a way to tie together my earlier landscape work. But that is on the creative burner to ponder a little longer;- )
BTW this image was made in Shanghai during this last trip, early in the evening. My inital intent was to photograph the freeway, but when I saw the reflection of the inside of the room as well, it occured to me that this was a rather nice image for this series. Inside looking out at the inside.
Best regards, Doug
