This is an interesting concept to compare with what our brains decide to forget and why. Rather, it would be interesting to apply the reasons certain memories in our brains are retained to deletion decisions for Google.

Paul Kwiatkowski’s new online photography series Eat, Prey, Drug takes the viewer on a disorienting road-trip from the heavenly clouds of Mount Olympus to the dark, Hadean rivers of the underworld via America. Along the way he derails the storied American road trip genre from it’s well trodden course of the diaristic photo-journal to multimedia internet experience encompassing photography, video and fiction.
Paul recently talked to Hotshoe about the inspirations behind the project and his desire to expand the traditional photo book narrative into an immersive internet experience.
Alan Knox: What first inspired you to follow photography?
Paul Kwiatkowski: I used to work in photojournalism as a multimedia producer prior to the recession, at the height of America’s invasion of Iraq. I remember that, for the first time, agents were selling camera phone images of the London bus bombing and screen shots of Saddam Hussein’s hanging. At the time, the only photographs making money were from the celebrity circle jerk surrounding Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Anna Nicole Smith. That moment in Western history when photography exposed itself to annihilation was when I took interest.

In the 1980s Steir developed a technique that involved applying paint exclusively by dripping and flinging it onto the canvas. Despite the freedom of execution and the large areas of canvas to be addressed, Steir exercises expert control over her methods, which she developed in part through in-depth study of Japanese and Chinese painting. The pouring process also evokes comparison with the work of Jackson Pollock—but rather than painting on the floor, Steir works from a ladder on unstretched canvas tacked to the wall, pouring and flinging paint, water, or solvent from oversaturated brushes and allowing the fluid media to cascade down the length of the support. As she has explained, “the paint itself makes the picture…. Gravity makes the image.” Txt Met Museum
” And these waterfalls are more of the monoprint series. The grid is drawn later. The blue, gold and white were printed, and then I poured paint over it and drew the grid over that. These shapes are like ghosts. I just wait in front of the thing before I either throw the paint or make the mark. If I have to sit in a chair and wait there every day for months, I do it.” Txt Bomb Magazine
