There’s just so much to see in Budapest. And I’m pretty greedy when it comes to looking. Fear of missing out on visual stimulus… In art I still struggle with doing more than ‘documenting what I see’. I suppose this may have something to do with my conservation background and the value I see in recording historic buildings, making a record of time (for future generations, for decisions on interventions, etc). I have to force myself to deconstruct so that I can rebuild. Cutting up existing images and then reconstructing is an easy way to do that. So I’ve been in search of old photo books. But I’m beginning to think that using/manipulating pictures of Budapest or Hungary may not be the way to go. It may not result in work that’s very different from previous series. A step in that process needs to change.
