ACCIDENTS  is a series of 10 "accidental"

photograph prints, a joint effort by JP's

accidental pressing of his iPhone

Camera app's capture button & iPhoto's

ability to "metadatafy" the location & time

of the errant images' origins of production.

though the still images may visually,

aesthetically recall surrealist images

in motion, ACCIDENTS  is less concerned about

the new grounds that image-making may take

via the use of the smartphone, its ubiquitous

presence, its updated role as a utility

in our daily lives --- than it is about evoking

questions (such as the following) centered on

humans' kinship with utilitarian mobile technologies:

to what extent do our smartphones know

more about us --- than we know ourselves?

how much do smartphones serve

as archives of our virtual & at times

physical imprints on the offline & online worlds?
