I'm interested to pursue and investigate for the moment the relationship between your work and that of Conceptual art, particularly the use of the photographic image. First of all, given the partial break down and negation of visuality in CA, how do you see the function of the photographic image in your own work, beyond the documentary aspect? How does this differ from a first generation Conceptual practice - I'm thinking here in particular of something like Adrian Piper's 'Catalysis' series, which documented her street performances in New York, questioning the normative protocols of quotidian space. I regard these as having a strong correlation with your own comments regarding 'express[ing] certain things.....without fitting in properly'. Do you think that the 'banal' nature of your own photos, as you've described them to me, can demonstrate 'an annoyance and embarrasment to a given unjust power-system?
