Your Non-creative Photograph

2015
Dimensions variable
Digital photographs
Edition limited by the number of people suitably equipped and capable of following the instructions

The work is an edition comprising the first photograph taken by each person in keeping with these instructions:

Place your camera-enabled mobile phone screen-up on the nearest approximately flat, horizontal surface, without regard to the phone’s orientation. Open the standard camera application for your phone. Select the camera lens that faces up. Press the shutter button with your dominant hand’s index finger. Follow these instructions as quickly as possible, without introducing any decisions of your own, e.g., intentionally orienting the phone sideways. Failure to do so voids any resulting photograph’s status as an edition of the work.
