Picture of the Day – The Country of the Blind

I recently did a whole new type of project, an autoethnographic piece describing the issues surrounding U.S. Copyright, public domain and the use of intelligent materials to create new artworks, in this case, photographs. I shot original photos for the project¬†based off the public domain version of H.G. Wells’ story The Country of the Blind. This is a great story and if you haven’t already read it, you should. In fact, you can get it at no cost from Project Gutenberg.

If you’d like to read my essay go ahead and download it from this post. HINT: the pretty picture is at the end. My final images for the project are below.
