Toyo Project 1 is here
Again, I am in Kuala Lumpur, it is 2107 and Toyo is messing with my mind.
Seeing the picture in the first post was a shock. That night: Walking around the Lower East Side with some people on a lot of broken glass and we went to a bar first and the streets were all bodegas and Korean florists and guys selling drugs or dime bags and everything was fun, burnt out and/or threatening when we walked in the music was on and we were overlooking things and there were pipes and sculptures all over.
I took this photo of Toyo that night. Or so Toyo tells me.
Hi Steve, sorry I couldn't serect any of Photos yet,? I have some question to ask, do you have an idea of Title of this book project? And where is Forcusing of my photo work? Like which period?like 80s Ny or NoSeNo 99 night event? You are thinking combining your NoSeNo Video, means you are more detail of your project , let me know wher to forcus my photos?!
Photo book.. no title yet...
Subject is simply ten photos.
Up to you, but I hope I can decide 2 or 3.
The point is to put together something that is interesting and full of information and stories.
SO it could be anything... but maybe it is good to have only a few from No Se No, because that is so famous already..
As for teh video... I am not sure how it will work yet...
I am thinking that my black and white videos will be the heart of the project. And some things, like No Se No, you also have...
But the final result cannot be predicted right now.
I am just wondering if you are interested or not.
If you don't want, to.. I understand...
If you are interested...for now that is good enought.
I can include you as a possibility in my proposal.
Then when I start to see my footage, I can better understand what can be made.
For example, I videoed you talking... that must be interesting.
Is all of it interesting? Is the tape damaged?
Maybe you talk about something and you have a photo of it..
I remember you were speaking in Japanese...
but you said
"Don't carry mugger money"
Maybe you have a photoof that. Maybe I have a photo or video of that...
these kinds of questions...
I am sorry I am not clearer...but I hope it will be an interesting experience and video.
if you have a theme or topic or title, I am happy to use it.
Steve Thankyou your reply, I'll talk to you later I gat go dentist appo again. Ok?
Ha ha ha...
I hope the dentist is Ok for you...
Hey Steve, yeah I get something from your comment, about forces! You are not forcing me
and my photo so as you are not forucing you and your video,you are interested to make interesting book!? Combination of my photos with your video work and with some writing (story). I'm interested your Idea Steve! You are good writer that you showed me in Facebook. You have
something in your head! Like christa G and Stelarc. .. Etc . That we can talk about or tell story about ?! I don't know now we should think and talk more ok ?

Toyo.. Please do not worry about the story..
The starting point is the photo.
It can be a not famous person or a landscape or teh snow on cars.
A tree a show a performance, teh sculpture garden
The question is
What is in your heart that you want to share?
Toyo... what do you think?
Maybe we do one photo a week, or one photo a month?
It is important for me to create a blog post that introduces the 10 photos...
