Thirteen Moons and Dust

Sidi Kaouki, Morocco

Born on the thirteenth. Innocence lost at thirteen. Daughter was born on the thirteenth. Mother died on the thirteenth of the thirteenth year. It is an awkward number. Odd and unruly.

Pictures of the full moon. Documents from different places and perspectives. A pinhole illumination. Dust accumulates on the imulsion. Scanned. Negative versions. Dust glitters like stars. Stars are dust.

Thirteen Moons and Sun Burns (Magnified)

‘Chance arises from disorder, not regularity. It demands randomness – its light sparkles in dark obscurity. We fail it when we shield it from misfortune, and its sparkle abandon’s it when failed.’ Georges Bataille, Le Coupable, 1944.

‘O, swear not by the moon, th’ inconstant moon,
That monthly changes in her circle orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.‘
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
