Read in November, 2008

Look, I love metapraxis like it's nobody's business, but this was pushing it a bit for me. I feel like his self-descriptions were a bit indulgent. The photography segments didn't work for me either. Too literal. I don't know ... I haven't seen his work before, I'd certainly try another. The style of his work feels a bit naff to me as well (dated? is that a bit mean?). Had a lot of good moments though.
