I don&#8217;t consider myself overly nostalgic.  I typically take things from the past (from pop culture to family photos) and somehow break those images down.  I erase the identities in family photos.  I either draw VHS tapes with permanent markers or reproduce them as pixelated images.  My two overall themes are memory and change.  So the memories typically come from my youth.  I remember in the early 90s when I was in high school, I thought the 80s were so uncool and terrible and I would never look back fondly on that time, but it really was a special time.  Bright colors.  Max Headroom.  The Goonies.  The NES and digital technology in the early phases.  I think using memory and change as my main themes, I&#8217;m really concerned with mortality.  Not concern or fear or death, but that human element of knowing that we are limited.  I think using personal memories rather than a generic idea of memory makes the mortality association more subtle or balanced.

I actually never see Richardson photos on my dashboard, though saw another joke/mention of him recently. It&#8217;s funny how who we follow totally informs what we think of all of Tumblr. I&#8217;ve a couple times seen those &#8220;everything on Tumblr&#8221; jokey photosets, and always think, &#8220;my Tumblr doesn&#8217;t look anything like that.&#8221; A couple months ago, I stayed in a cabin out on the Hood Canal in Washington for a couple days with my best friend, and it was obviously cold but oddly sunny, and we cooked our dinners over a fire and wore lots of warm layers of plaid, and watched the tide come in and out and the sun set behind the mountains, and it felt like we were basically living in a Tumblr post, and I made that joke to another friend, and he was like, yeah, my Tumblr doesn&#8217;t look anything like that&#8230;
