'Operational Realism' explores notions of identification in a world flooded with representations. Images and videos can be de-contextualised and disseminated immediately with global reach. We see more, we trust less. It seems little authenticity remains in the 'documentary form', which was born out of its indexical qualities and was once synonymous with 'truth'. The spectacle of documentary photography and its relationship with authenticity has become undermined. What is the 'real', what is a representation, and what is a 'real representation of a simulation' are they now ultimately indistinguishable?
