Title • metal hand

A little while ago I had a discussion regarding the value of running a commenting system, and it was pointed out to me that one of the major problems with them is that they can give you an impression of your work that may well be at odds with the value of that work. Or, less obscurely, that you can post something you like, that subsequently gets little or no feedback, and you are led to conclude that its value is less than you thought.

And while such a view is congruent with the idea of artistic integrity – post what you know is good and hang the critics – I don’t think I’ve reached such a lofty artistic position quite yet ;-)

All of which is a rather long-winded way of saying that perhaps yesterday’s entry wasn’t up to much. And I’m not convinced that today’s effort is massively better. This one is the result of experimenting with i) an embossed aluminium door, ii) the reflection of my hand, and iii) around five copies of the image set to overlay blend mode. And, as with yesterday’s entry, I don’t think this is a particularly wonderful image, but I did think it was sufficiently interesting to put up.
