I’m an engineer. There, I’ve said it.
I’m not an “artist”, and I never hung out in the arts coffee bar when I was a student. I used to make up my chosen subject when asked, because revealing my true identity almost always resulted in silence. I used to say “Politics” or “Marine Biology” or the first thing that came into my head. “Electronics” used to send people “off to get a drink”. Pretentious moi?
Having said that, I do like being creative, which is why I make stuff, and take photos. In a way, I might appear more creative if I took square out-of-focus photographs with heavy vignette and unrealistic colours, like those people who think that Instagram makes them artistic. Maybe this could be a new direction for 2012?
