questioning reality - fall 2008

I am intrigued with various aspects of reality; point of view, circumstance, culture, how one perceives what is “real”. In this series I continue my juxtapositioning of unexpected elements, chosen to induce surprising outcomes. My goal is to elicit the questioning of reality.

I set about to strengthen these elements of unreality by first capturing them as a digital image. Then I manipulate, layer, and alter the piece in my computer.  My choices along the way determine my outcome. As in Surrealism, I am drawn to the uncanny, disorientated, unsettled and odd.
