Last Week’s Instagram

Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. The pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

  1. Well there’s an image for our times, Otto, objectively and metaphorically speaking. And quite apart from the ‘connectivity’ angle there is also the notion of ‘crossed wires’ – i.e. in the way we think about crucial issues and come to entirely the wrong conclusions; and all because the replicating multitude of ‘connections’ is confirming and re-confirming wrong-headedness and general rationality deficit. I think you struck a chord with me today 😉

  2. Oddly, I looked at this and looked again. A few times trying to figure out what it is. Each time I thought I saw something else. Then I read Tish’s comment and I guess now I know. I kind of liked it when I saw other things in there.

    1. Yes, I can see the association to 1984, but it becomes even more eerie when you look into something called technological determination. Hopefully this the photo not a sign that we are heading in that direction.

  3. Now this is interesting, busy, and puzzling. I think I sort of know what it is. The lighting must have been really tricky. The lights on the lower parts of the columns look like hairs or spines.

  4. There are so many things to look at in this image. I think to myself it’s amazing what humans create — then I think maybe we create more than we should given our environmental concerns. Maybe we can invent our way out of those problems though? Maybe I’m having these thoughts because of the toned down mood of the photo?

  5. Cool, I love the complexity of this. like an elaborate etching, at first glance, on my phone, I thought it was inside a knitting mill of some sort. One of the subsidiary reactions, is that trapped feeling you get of being enmeshed in industrial structures. so, a very interesting shot!

  6. oooooh , i would love the opportunity to take pics there, i love huge immovable electric robots!! lovely pic, Otto!! love love love… counts the loves 🙂
