And of course if he was a "real" photographer he would not make a print of a
small part of a neg. and then take a picture of that and then repeat the
process making for a multi generational extravaganza which would not reveal
anything especially on a metaphysical level.
Anyone in their first semester of photography classes would know this.

He'd hang up a sheet of paper on the house across the street and project the
neg across the street onto THAT!
