Michael Wolf - Hong Kong: Front Door/Back Door (published 2005)

"Wolf’s trip through one of the most densely populated areas of the world is also a journey through a strangely underpopulated place, inhabited only by the traces of city dwellers.

The dark back alleys that crisscross the city are home to objects that, at first glance, seem to be discarded—the random detritus of the man-made world. Under the scrutiny of Wolf’s photographic eye, these objects become fascinating installation pieces, while the abstract patterns of the buildings reveal the beauty and order that underlie the apparent chaos of the city.”

David Emitt Adams - Conversations with History (2013)

Artist’s statement: 

"I was born in Yuma, Arizona, in 1980. By the time I was an adult the Arizona desert was far from that once documented by Timothy O’Sullivan. Never have I known this landscape without roads, homes, buildings or urban sprawl. This notion of land untouched by the hand of man is so foreign it might as well be make-believe. As long as people have been in the American West, we have found its barren desert landscapes to be an environment perfect for dumping and forgetting.

The deserts of the West also have special significance in the history of photography. I have explored this landscape with an awareness of the photographers who have come before me, and this awareness has led me to pay close attention to the traces left behind by others.

For this body of work, I collected discarded cans from the desert floor, some over four decades old, which have earned a deep reddish-brown, rusty patina. This patina is the evidence of light and time, the two main components inherent in the very nature of photography.

I use these objects to speak of human involvement with this landscape and create images on their surfaces through a labor-intensive 19th century photographic process known as wet-plate collodion.

The result is an object that has history as an artifact and an image that ties it to its location. These cans are the relics of the advancement of our culture, and become sculptural support to what they have witnessed.”

Me in regards to any other creature:  Aww, you’re so lovely. Can I get you food, water, a place to sleep? Nope? Okay. Stay well, dear friend.

Me in regards to a spider:  YOU ARE AN ABOMINABLE HORROR OF CREATION. I WILL NOT SLEEP UNTIL I FIND AND SLAUGHTER YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY. DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE.

Yo, if you’re into wolves you need to check out the Marsupial Bridge before the city comes in and paints over these awesome wheats

One of my amazingly talented best friends made these beautiful beasts! <3 (and maybe I know someone who helped her a little with migrating them to the streets….)

This will introduce you to a color you’ve probably never seen before.
True “Cyan”. Usually most people find it an ugly color, or just an ordinary light blue. BUT! Computers and TVs dilute the actual appearance of cyan and when you see it, its fucking awesome.
SO! Stare at the white dot for 2 minutes. Just as long as you can. The circle will get fuzzy and youll start to see a ring forming. Back your head up slowly and look around the edge of the circle.
Craziest, best blue Ive ever seen.
