Well I'm writing my artist statement and don't want to sound like a dumb@ss.
Granted that's not hard to do even if I use the proper capitalization.
Seriously though, the reason I ask is that I often see it both ways with
certain alt processes so I don't know which is the proper use. To capitalize
or not to capitalize? That is my question...
