You do not speak for me.
"She Wore Blue Velvet"
I've always wanted to be Dorothy Vallens + Frank Booth... Achievement unlocked!
GUESS WHAT EVERYONE:
"Facebook did eventually restore Hagen’s profiles, [...] but the artist finds the timing curious: they reappeared only after Chicagoist reached out to Facebook for explanation. Hagen herself did not receive any notice of restoration or apology, and she said she was never able to have a real conversation with anyone at Facebook about her appeal, receiving only multiple boilerplate email responses."
The reactivation of my accounts I find interesting/troubling. I wonder how many other artists are deleted that don't have access to these resources or networking opportunities.
With most art projects, the initial idea never comes out on the other side unscathed. It transforms and takes on a new meaning, usually for the better; this series is no different. It began with the exploration of an emotion and ended with an epiphany regarding the difference between a photograph of a brief moment in time and the moment itself.
When I get hired to do commercial work, it's a really fun challenge to mesh my style with what a client wants. In the next couple weeks I have some shoots that I'm really excited about too! Hooray for collaboration!
