Artist's description:

As an artist I have become intrigued with the
Writing of the French philosopher Jean Baudrillard. His treatise Simulacra and Simulation questions the relationship among reality, symbols and society. Baudrillard believes that our contemporary society has substituted reality and meaning with symbols and signs. Moreover, Baudrillard believes that society has become so overloaded with these simulacra and our lives so pervaded with the constructs of society that all meaning was made meaningless by “The infinitely mutable”. Baudrillard called this circumstance the “precession of simulacra”.
These photographic constructs are illustrative of such a precession. As Baudrillard says “the proof of art through antiart” All the photographs were shot digitally through the view- finder of an analog camera, either a ciroflex or a Kodak Duaflex. Both these analog cameras are old technology, and yet are instrumental in creating an image of an image that represent a link to an historical period when the flow of Simulacra was just beginning to create an era of mass reproduction and reproducibility that represents our electronic media culture. Is it a culture of too much information, or a mere pretense, a sham of vague representation?
A Simulacrum?
