This blog has moved to!

Back to basics

The concept of the "use" of the image does not refer only to usefulness in relation to painting or the enjoyment of art. (Rather, its purpose is to help us decide precisely what such uses are.) It is impossible to construe the notion of use too broadly.

-Walter Benjamin, "Letter From Paris (2): Painting and Photography"

The last sentence here secretly underpins everything related to MCV MCV: the relation between "use" and "image" is always open to question. (This blog is not teleological.)
