Glyph

Abstract

This image was made using this technique too, but was not taken from a video still. It stared as a photograph but then I re-photographed the image as it appeared on and led screen. I then cut and reconfigured the images properties. Here the humor comes from the glyphs and the composition. The image is architectonic because it feels like a ruin. At a smaller scale it might read as a tablet or stele. The inscription is not an ancient language but is instead adolescent graffiti I captured in a parking deck. The rudimentary depiction of male genitals and an upside down cross are both icons of pissed-off youth trying to be rebellious as a form of release. Here though the release is a humorous one as I adapt it into a picture not made by a teen boy, but by a man very aware of his aging
