Found art Friday 46

Today we continue our appreciation of Susan Sontag's seminal essay On Photography "All photographs are momento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's (or thing's) mortality, vulnerability, mutability.  Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt."  And yet let's tango with her thinking in this moment of our twenty first century.  Melting, proliferating, exploding, repeating, receding, deciding, undying, unifying and fomenting with images.
Enuf of that.  Cam the new camera is trying to find out what he's good at.  Maybe it is sets of duets. 
Set one:
Set two:

And found by Diane Gage in San Diego
Iris Douglasiana  -  Didn't we go to elementary school with her?
(Again reaching for the duet).  Fashion by Hussein Chalayan that Lady Gaga is not wearing during her 60 minutes interview
Gaga was "Born this Way" at the Grammy's
 1980's famous shoulders of David Byrne's Stop Making Sense tour.

Have a rugged week, and please stop trying to make sense of the news.  Except that it does make sense.  It's our attempt to stop time's relentless melt.
