Is our vision of the world around us skewed in this advancing age of technology against a backdrop of decaying cultural and physical infrastructure? In this age of information overload it is increasingly difficult to distinguish the authentic from the fake. With so many contradictory images that stare at us from our personal devices, we are deprived of being able to rely on our most elemental senses to validate our experience. An orchestrated narrative, artificial of course but they are not illusions. These composite images record the world of appearances seen through a veil of conjecture and contrivance.
The images are pigment dye printed on rag paper in a limited edition of 10. All images are 22 inches wide and 17 inches high. Shipped flat $300.
