The Miserable Life of an Artist

when i was in college i made this project where i made a book.
the book was made up of random images...
snapshots and a passage from the bible....
you would have an image and some words...
i randomly selected the images.
what i wanted to see was if we tried to merge both just because they where next to each other...
and we do... we have a penchant for trying to figure things out....
even though they might not have anything to do with one another...
In this new series I am trying the same thing....
instead i am using video...randomly taken... and either news or obituaries.
I have found that there is a connection between all these things....
and thats why we try to make sense of them...
why news and obituaries...
i dont know if i will do obituaries because its kind of creepy but to remind one of one mortality is a powerful thing.... i dont think i will have the strength to do that... plus i think that also remembering people is a wonderful thing... although i would try not to use names....
maybe i finally lost it....
