21 years (part 1)

The first part of "thing" (1994-1999)

Basically it will eventually be every single decent image of me taken or created in just over two decades, all in chronological order, including loads never before posted.

For me it's a form of aversion therapy. I'm trying to overload on images of myself so I can wipe my slate clean and make a new, more creative start next year. Once I'm done no one (including me) will ever want to see another photo or video or picture of me again and I will feel free to move my creative practice onto other things.

I previously wrote about this intention here and here.

I have a lot more to say about "thing", my motivation(s), the "year of the selfie" and why I'm stopping taking photos of myself, but I will post those thoughts after the final part of "thing", which will probably leak into 2015 at this rate.

Credits for this segment (1994-99):

All images by me except:

Some images could not have attribution traced. Mists of time etc. Sorry if you were the creator.

Song: 'She Calls Angels (demo)' by Six Inch Killaz (lyrics by Jasmine, music by me), performed by me with Mona on toy piano. Recorded 1998, remixed 2014.
