Jeff Wall in conversation with David Campany

Went to see Jeff Wall in conversation with David Campany at the new Saint Martins site at Kings Cross.

starting points in everyday life 
noticing something from everyday life and then not photographing it
just experiencing it and then waiting - a gap - a poetic gap
the missed event creating a wake of energy to create something new
"there are no rules"
making art can become a model for what a work of art in that medium can be
becoming desperate to create your art can leave you gullible to your own mediocrity
the game of finding your own judgment of a work of art
"it's a pitfall to have a definition of photography"
"there are no rules only results"
make work for your standards
