Camera! Action!

When we feel that our lives are out control, we devise methods of management. In my case, I tell a story, I take a picture, I frame things.

I use Art as a coping mechanism. When something bad is happening and I feel powerless to stop it, I consider my audience and how to best package the experience for the entertainment of others. I think about angles. I become a director.

As I mentioned earlier, Sophie Calle said that she only feels compelled to display the negative experiences she has in her life. She said that she didn't think her audience would find happiness interesting. Maybe, like me, she lives the happy moments and directs the unhappy ones.
