PHotography editor STATEMENT

"The images are a first for BOAAT. They didn’t come to us through the regular channels and didn’t immediately present themselves as art. They came to me from a friend, the photographer, during a discussion about language. He made these images during an experiment in which a subject has ink placed on their tongue and then is asked to say a series of words/sounds so that the ink then reveals where the tongue makes contact with the subjects mouth in order to make that sound. These images were then made to document each different sound – which is indicated as the title of each image. But the images are confusing. I know what they are actually illustrating but my mind can’t help but wander into a dark Lynchian fantasy. - Brian Nolte, Photography Editor
