The Tourist #10


“Commercial tourist imagery achieves effects by provoking the viewers unconscious.”


P. 176

My tourist imagery achieves whatever it is that it achieves by an obsessive preoccupation with my own pre-conscious activity. The unconscious isn’t a dog which one can teach tricks so I do not try to do so, not my own, and not anyone else’s.

People are not surprised to see my pictures, but they also did not expect to. The distinction is important, I think.
