Indiscipline

The long-term project takes its name from a King Crimson song title whose lyrics describe the creative process of a sculptor (Margaret Belew) as she undertakes the construction of a new piece. I decided on a simple idea for the winter of 2015 which lasted around two years: to capture scenes from one location—a set of windows in my living space looking out onto the street. It became a discipline of observation, patience, and obsessive thought. Many moves to grab the camera were cued from sound: ignoring more familiar tones and perking up at others. The exercise reflected my own exisitence in the apartment as to why I remained and how the images confirmed my time there. The street outside became my readily available stage of actors.
