These set of images engage with the relationship between the representation of real spaces and places and there virtual equivalent as seen through web spaces like Photosynth. Such software amplifies photographic possibilities and produces a kind of hyper-photography. The imagery here focuses on architecture in an attempt to expand a building into a virtual construct and experiment with the tension between virtual and real architecture. The photographic elements drawn together by Photosynth construct and reshape architecture in a way that does not consider the established or stable identity of a building. The resulting imagery, shaped by Photosynth algorithms, is a kind of cubist, hyper architecture that looks similar to the work of the postmodern architect Frank Gehry.
