    Re: Is the obsession with analogue gearing an obstacle to art?

    Great question

    I used MINOX age 7 to learn how developing worked....no enlarger allowed

    Shortly after I used one Pentax, 4 decades always SUNNY 16 processed to slide or prints

    Later applied science photography

    Many Polaroids

    There are no rules

    Alt Prints are the future, DIGI shot, printed negs, magic handmade prints

    I expect we get Bionic vision sooner than later

    Not kidding

    exactly!

    great thing were invented / discovered / art created by not using things the way they were intended. I would imagine cameras film &c are no different than anything else

    Use an "artistic" imagination and there will be plenty of examples.
    My comment serves as a challenge to a generalized statement.

    There are rules in everything.
    In some cases we don't know them (yet) or have been given a freedom to not follow some of them to a certain degree.
    Even breaking the rules, if used repeatedly, becomes a rule
    People do not create anything, in the best case scenario they purposely transform one form of matter into another one.

    There aren't unintended uses, just folks who might not recognize, or want to recognize something might be used in an "different way". it has to do with what psychologists refer to as "functional fixedness".
