This is me by the way - I didn't beat someone up so I could take these photos. I also didn't beat myself up so I could take these photos - I bruise a lot and have no spatial awareness...

I'm starting to make connections between the body and the landscape, maybe portrait and landscape? Referencing orientation, contrast, contradiction and the (static/moving) image. Within this I'm thinking of the landscape as a timeless, isolated, uninterrupted and natural(?) structure, becoming interrupted by constructed (contradictory) layers of (internal and external) body matter. Faults that need to be healed.

Paul, I'll probably see you before you read this but I wanted to say that the photos of the bruises in reference to the mire are uncanny. There are certain similarities that are really strong within this imagery.
