Uh... I've taken a very similar photo in my apartment. Wow.

I want to like this series, but I can't get past how badly shot these photographs are. When it comes to conceptual art the aesthetics of the piece should either enhance the idea or disappear entirely.

"archival ink on paper"

Is that fancy art-speak for inkjet?

A great title piggybacking in on some crap art.

Is that a joke?

No, w7ngman @4, the fancy art-speak for inkjet is "giclee". "Archival" is just ad copy. The only reason one would care about the archival qualities of the ink is if you were buying it.

I agree with the assessment, though -- judging from this tiny clip, this is less interesting than a thousand pics I could find on Flickr in an hour or two.
