“With so much innovation going on at this particular moment in contemporary photography, it might seem delusionally foolhardy to think we might be able to make critical sense of it as it is happening. But in the last year, I felt a real frame-breaking shift in the fabric of the medium, so much so that I have now begun to see the past few years as the precursors to a broader new imperative that is beginning to reach maturity - the rise of what we might call interdisciplinary photography.
This approach has developed so much momentum that it is literally engulfing the leading edge of the medium, gorging itself on adjacent artistic methods and incorporating them piece by piece into a larger whole. It’s a voracious beast that we have unleashed, and it’s currently expanding in nearly all directions at a breakneck pace.”
get away, old thinker. i can’t find the quote at this time, but someone already predicted that all artists would be multidisciplinary one day in the future. that the mediums would start to melt together. also, photographers are starting to look at other mediums because photography is becoming stale and trite as hell while the other mediums, which some people claimed to be dead, are starting to be revitalized. also, half of the people they mentioned in this piece make tepid process work. metamodernism. bored. so fucking bored.
