Describe the photograph selected for One Hour Photo in three words:
I saw this.

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
I selected the concept because its impermanence works well with the One Hour Photo concept. I selected the image itself because of it’s starkness and meditative quality. Basically, it’s something I want to stare at for an hour.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
It feels perfect.

How does one go about selecting a photograph that is good enough for an exhibition but that can never be seen again?
The quality of the photograph was not as important as the consideration I paid to it’s content. Much like the concept behind “One Hour Photo”, the television set (my photograph depicts a gold television set) has attained a dream-like status different from any other object in the world. With a flick of a switch, we are able to engage in a “truer than”, but also more fleeting experience of everyday reality. It is this transitory notion that I felt was in keeping with the ideology behind “One Hour Photo”.

What are your thoughts on letting go of this image?
Nothing is really lost anymore. The human desire to fragment, codify, classify and control is a powerful one; from private family photo albums, to public libraries, and online photo archives, systems of organization both public and private surround us. Lost cultures survive in museum collections and photographs hold passing moments frozen in time. Despite the abstract nature of “One Hour Photo’s” temporary archive, I believe that the obsessive way at which people claim parts of culture as their own will see that my photograph will live on.
