Probably the closest I come is photography, but a) I recognize that I'm a hack who's gotten lucky from time to time and b) even if I step away from the self-critique long enough to say otherwise, the best I can claim is that photography highlights something you might not otherwise have seen. This seems inherently different somehow. It's not like I'm capturing the essence of the subject or showing that which lies beneath. The process ends up feeling much more calculated and I dare say simplistic than that.
Yeah, I've no idea where I'm going with this. They're just thoughts that came to the surface when I found the Clichy animation.
Here are some koi. There's likely a connection.
