Plink! Planck! Plunk!

Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve. (Max Planck)

Nobody intended me to see this – let alone photograph and exhibit it. It was just there, being itself. Some carpenter nailed it up as part of a fence, but I have deliberately dismantled that particular functionality and reconstituted it as a work of art.

Frankly, the original photograph (now more than a year old) was marred by fish-eye distortion, and I had filed it away, doubting it was worth spending Photoshop time on. But what I had seen didn’t go away; the idea of it persisted.

So here it is. Make of it what you will.

There is no matter as such – mind is the matrix of all matter. (Max Planck

Nothing we see or hear is perfect. But right there in the imperfection is perfect reality. (Shunryu Suzuki)

    • I generally have something of an Ikebana-style approach to throwing things away: I discard things judiciously, calmly, circumspectly, ‘snipping’ only when I’m clear something has no potential. When dealing with images, however, I often retain anything that might possibly work – even if I have doubts. (It helps to have an external drive with acres of storage space.) 🙂
