‘Am I Next?’: Ferguson’s Protests Through the Eyes of a Teenager
beautiful work by Transient Pictures & the folks at timelightbox
"I think the ‘catastrophic spell of things’ must be commodity and its simplifying and flattening of objects’ properties – which is a large part of what I am calling naming. Photography and the growth of consumer capitalism are so closely tied that to talk about photographs of objects is inevitably to talk about the effects of photography and capitalism on our conception of things at all. Michael Taussig explores this object-line of Benjamin’s ‘mystical Marxism’ in his book Mimesis and Alterity. It is a book which has had an ongoing influence on my thinking. In it, he locates this human activity of mimesis, embodiment through copying, that proposes an object-order and object-value outside of economic or allegorical terms; and instead he places mimesis within an economy of sympathetic magic which is a lot like Adorno’s ‘ur-historical’ here. It also makes me think of Robert Smithson and his repeated reference to George Kubler’s The Shape of Time in his writings and interviews which follow a similar trajectory.”
