Auto-Modernism.

When you come upon that which evokes a mood, what is our first impression before the minds eye brings a thought into focus?  What is the tip of the impulse that tickles our mind and emotion?  Can this moment be captured or framed?  Automatic flower portraits was conceived for a group exhibit “Auto Modernism at Da Da Gallery”.  These photographs were taken on a polaroid camera over the course of an afternoon in the Brooklyn Botanical garden and were created as fast, close, and fluid as the mind could perceive. Created in rapid succession, These images serve as a document to an attempt at automating the complex system of evaluation and execution that make up the act of cognition to action.
