Abstract

Take a photograph of your mom. It’s likely that although (of course) you’ll remember what your own mother looks like, you probably won’t remember the photo itself. However, if the photographer had cropped the picture of her horizontally, right through her forehead, shot it up close with a fisheye lens, and added a second exposure to the frame with two male sex organs replacing her eyes, you would surely have experienced an emotional reaction looking at it. You’d remember it as, “That offensive picture where mom’s face looks like a balloon with someone else’s very personal belongings duplicated on it, by that stupid photographer we never should have hired for the family tree collection.” People don’t always have to be offended by your work — but if it’s different, they’ll find it far more interesting.
