Meeting people, talking about things

Curtis Mann was kind enough to come talk at DAAP today and we had the privilege to talk with him briefly after the lecture about his work and his process. It was great to hear him articulate what his work was about and also be honest about uncertainties regarding which way the work is going. He also spoke at length about his process and his uncertainties about that. I will be going to the grad lunch tomorrow where he will be talking to the graduate students so hopefully I'll be able to update a bit more on specific thoughts and impressions then. But for now, some examples of his work. (Also here is his tumblr.)

He uses bleach on found photos (generally from flickr or c-prints bought on ebay), and lately has started to make large grids like the top image.
