I found these buried in the archives. Before introductions to color printing, I created a body of distorted black and white photographs. Here are a few examples. I found this text attached to the original statement. Seems I've been incorporating language and photo for a while.

"I’ve lost the thread of the story I was telling. My elephant roams his dreams of Hindustan again.Narrative, poetics destroyed my body, a dissolving, a return. The body is a device to calculate the astronomy of the spirit.Look through that astrolabe and become oceanic."

(Excerpts from the Fragile Vile by Rumi)
