When Am I Coming Down?

Shot Of The Day: August 2, 2015





QOTD: I had wonderful visions. I sat down at home on the divan and started to dream. What I was thinking appeared in colors and in pictures. It lasted for a couple of hours and then it disappeared.
— Albert Hoffmann

Quote from The Hip Pocket Guide To Offbeat Wisdom by William Sauer

Backstory: As a lysergic lad I sometimes found that at the end of a vision I would see in triplicate. An interesting finish. (This is a triple exposure, not an overlay, done with a D200). — TAG

Equipment: Nikon D200 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED & Nikon D7100 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC

Identität Abschottung (Selbstporträt mit Isolierband)

Shot Of The Day: July 30, 2015





QOTD: The truth value of memory … lies in the specific function of memory to preserve promises and potentialities which are betrayed and even outlawed by the mature, civilized individual. — Herbert Marcuse (Eros and Civilization)

Quote from The Hip Pocket Guide To Offbeat Wisdom by William Sauer

Backstory: Portrait of an in-significant Other – Art in the One-Dimensional Society. This was a painful shot to get: each time I thought I had nailed the exposure I removed the tape and examined the image on my Linux box. Unsatisfied, I reapplied tape and shot more frames. By the time I nailed the exposure I was just a bit sore. One has to suffer for one’s art, I suppose. — TAG

Locale: In Object Relations theory Identity Foreclosure is a commitment to a prefabricated identity (e.g. an individual or group role) that occurs prior to or without any Self exploration. The “integration” of the identity of the individual in question is halted. In psychoanalytic theory Identity Foreclosure is self-imposed and a less severe form of Identity Diffusion. But viewed from a Frankfurter Schule perspective it can be imposed by society, to facilitate compliance with the Leistungsprinzip (performance principle) – even when the individual believes they are acting as an independent entity. The existence of an internalized ideology is something Marcuse posited in One-Dimensional Man, the “sequel” to Eros and Civilization. In the situation where individuals behave in a manner dictated by the internalized ideology (the Leistungsprinzip) Freudian and political repression are as one. Who profits?
