a visual fomite…

And She Said…

I don’t want my pictures ending up in a thrift store or antique shop — to have someone at some future time use my image as the cornerstone for an artwork or craft project. I don’t want someone posting my pic up on the internets and writing a story like this. I don’t want someone using my image as a public domain appropriation into a mass retail “jokey” birthday card for sale at fine card shops or big box discount stores. I don’t wish to be made part of someone’s pastiche documentary art film. I do not wish to be trafficked posthumously like a copper penny slathered in virus. I don’t want to be a visual fomite — infecting someone’s nightmares. I don’t want to be sold so cheaply. I want my soul to rest, after it was partially diminished and stolen by this photograph. Just leave my image and my soul alone.

is the deadliest radiation.
