Found this today when looking at various things on the web.
About the trouble of time / photography / the “instant” and “recording reality”

John Berger

I couldn’t sleep last night so I read from John Berger’s And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos

Found this computer work by David Claerbout today – going to see how long my flower lasts…..
