EARLY WORKS: Photography, Figure Drawing and Poetry

As an undergraduate I designed this interface as my first online portfolio in 2000. The interfaces is still interesting - as well as nostalgic - especially since Apple used the same lens six years later when the iPhone came out. At the time I was reading Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida and based much of the criteria for judging my work on the idea of the "punctum" - a detail in an image that inspires uniquely personal meaning (which is different for each person). This is contrasted with the word "statium", refering to the overall story that can be understood by all viewers.
