Back in the day, when I wasn’t mentally impaired like now, or better to say when my mental impairment was somehow productive, I came up with that unique, personal definition of the art of photography: “Photography is the art of subjectivizing one’s subjectivity”.
Moving forward around twenty years here I am using that old definition for opening a thread that doesn’t have much to do with photography. Living off the rents, yeah.
What is this thread about? well, it’s going to be about this:
We think we know, we think we perceive, but we mostly think, or better to say, rationalize our premises, postures, and feelings.That’s one major function of our head tofu: come up with explanations in our conscious plane. Something that kinda make sense, it’s not too dissonant, and doesn’t stop us doing the important things or being who we think we are.
So I want to create a thread for posting these type of tests, proofs, etc… that demonstrate how subjective we are despite the vehemence of our assertions, how our opinions seem arbitrary when put to test.
Feel free to post here anything that you may think fits.
