The Mystery

I probably shouldn't be writing at all about my response to the art that I see. I do know that my response to subjects I photograph is always emotional, not intelectual. I have no idea why I respond in the way I do - which means I feel "something" and then in response to that I set about making a photograph. I cannot begin to explain why I responded to this multimedia piece. It is a long darkened room with a projection screen at the end, showing a movie of a very subtle arctic landscape of ice, with the wind blowing. I think I was attracted to this, once again, with the incongruity of a perfect room with a polished floor, and a view of wilderness visible at the other end. The piece is titled "Loveland" by Charles Stankievech.
