STEVEN BROOKS 

I am very glad to have discovered Steven Brooks’s portfolio. His work slowly releases details of nocturnal and crepuscular atmospheres, quiet and calm. It is easy to be captured by this magic silence that, as himself wrote us, seems to call us into the scene. There is no desire to excessively impress the viewer, but to be caught by the wonderful and serene fortuity of our daily encounters.

«I’ve never been much of a talker.  Regretfully, I’m not much better at listening.  I think I’m too distracted by everything I see…and I see everything.  I’m especially fascinated by the world we’ve built.  Literally, the objects, structures, and infrastructure: built for a myriad of purposes, most of which are relatively fleeting, especially in America.  I like to observe cycles of formation, reclamation, and reuse—natural and man-made—the flux of all things tangible.  I’m also interested in the relationships between our built and natural environments and how they relate to us, whether people are present, or just the clues they leave behind.  Coupled with my visual nature, these interests led me to photography and inform my process.  My research is incidental to daily life. 

To me photography is, simply put, an exercise in pointing things out.  Although I appreciate “democratic” photographs that appear to be made in an offhand, casual manner, that isn’t what I’m after.  I’m more interested in infusing a touch of formality into my pictures.  Dramatic or unusual light and a carefully composed frame can transform the most banal subject matter into a scene that appears conceptualized, even painted.  If not quite idyllic, the scene might say, “Look at me.  I’m fabulous.”  I like that irony, and I find the process of discovering it endlessly invigorating.  It motivates me to keep looking, everywhere and always. 

When I was younger, I believed that I was compelled to roam and take pictures as a means of better understanding the world.  Although that is a nice sentiment, I’m no longer convinced that it’s even remotely true.  If anything, I’m increasingly perplexed by it.  What I am confident of, however, is that photography helps me appreciate the world simply by making it more interesting.  It allows me to revel in perpetual curiosity».

In the true spirit of getting you all to know this very tiny world, here is a timelapse of Penang, in the nortwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia.   Some of the shots will resonate with the exotic image you have of that country while others reveal the place to be just like many of your own cities.

Tele-Present Water by David Bowen

I rarely use the phrase ‘mind blown’, but this is one of those rare occurrences.

An art installation which combines real-time data, mechanical puppetry, and a physical grid representation usually employed virtually with computers:

This installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy station 46246, 49.985 N 145.089 W (49°59’7” N 145°5’20” W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from halfway around the world.

"*あとから入門した弟弟子の志らくを、師匠の談志が何かにつけてほめ、著者(談春)が腐っていたときの話

翌日、談春(ボク)は談志(イエモト)と書斎で二人きりになった。突然談志(イエモト)が、
「お前に嫉妬とは何かを教えてやる」
と云った。
「己が努力、行動を起こさずに対象となる人間の弱みを口であげつらって、自分のレベルまで下げる行為、これを嫉妬と云うんです。一緒になって同意してくれる仲間がいれば更に自分は安定する。本来ならば相手に並び、抜くための行動、生活を送ればそれで解決するんだ。しかし人間はなかなかそれができない。嫉妬している方が楽だからな。芸人なんぞそういう輩(やから)の固まりみたいなもんだ。だがそんなことで状況は何も変わらない。よく覚えとけ。現実は正解なんだ。時代が悪いの、世の中がおかしいと云ったところで仕方ない。現実は事実だ。そして現状を理解、分析してみろ。そこにはきっと、何故そうなったかという原因があるんだ。現状を認識して把握したら処理すりゃいいんだ。その行動を起こせない奴を俺の基準で馬鹿と云う」"
