Going back through images captured years earlier always excavates things overlooked. Creative development adopts and utilizes its changing criteria of meaning and truth.

“The ordinary consciousness conceives things as being, and studies them in quality, quantity, and measure. These immediate characteristics, however, soon show themselves to be not fixed but transient; and Essence is the result of their dialectic.” – Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
