OCTOCUMENTARY (4 of 4)

The photo image desensitises the imagination by appropriating a certain meaning to what, in the first image, is an agency completely up for grabs. It depoliticises what Rancière termed ‘the distribution of the sensible’. It tells you how and from where you are to look. This all sounds dangerously as though I’m about to say, no matter how hard you want to beat me, the line of fantasy is not dialectical.

THE LINE OF FANTASY IS NOT DIALECTICAL.

THE MOVING IMAGE IS DEAD. HIDE YOUR EYES. THERE'S NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

TIME FOR A LEMSIP.

What if you have a cathedral of lines. What if, by submitting three lines of fantasy to trigonometry, you can project a three dimensional image of the sex-haptic, then spill yourself into it like KY into a gas turbine. What then?
