Which is more uncomfortable: the pain of the past or the unknowable future?

The pain of the past.

 

Have you ever encountered a photograph of yourself that felt so unfamiliar that it did not seem to be of you at all?

No. I’m multiple.

 

In Camera Lucida, Roland Barthes wrote about a photograph of his mother standing in a winter garden as a child. The entire book attempts to address why this image of her is the one that most encapsulates her for him, regardless of the fact that it was taken years before he was even born. Describe a photograph of someone you have loved that none of us could ever understand.

L’amour est indescriptible.

 

Is the compulsion to save or archive things from the past an obligation or a burden?

Both.

 

 Is a good performance borne of empathy or experience?

Experience.
