Mark Dorf - //_PATH (2013)
“When examining our daily contemporary lives in Western culture, one finds that there is barely a single situation that is not influenced by digital technology and communication through the World Wide Web. I specifically find interest in the ways in which we have become dependent upon this technology to help aid us in our navigation of our every day and how it affects our perception of the world around us all socially, emotionally, and physically – it is no longer about logging on or off, but rather living within and creating harmony with the realms and constructs of the internet for our newest generation of inhabitants.
//_PATH explores these ideas through digital photography, collage, 3D rendering, and primitive 3D scanning technology. Within the images I focus on using strict geometric and synthetic form to contrast against the landscape in which they are manifested; a comparison of language.
The natural landscape can be seen as the most ancient of symbolic languages: it is the original set of symbols that birthed all of modern language; it is the original text. Focusing on the landscape and our modern digital language, I seek to understand our aggressive capture and digitization of our surroundings through very basic use of pure color and the native tools of contemporary digital imaging that we use to create meaning and manipulation in mass media.”
My apple consumption has gone up tenfold now that I have a toddler who only eats a few bites before getting bored/full.

I can’t help but love you…. Dan Auerbach.
*beard appreciation post* I want Dan’s beard so bad. And if I could have his hair that would be great also. Cause when my hair get’s that long it curls up all over the place and can’t be tamed. Just give me his hair and beard and I’ll stop whining…
