The dematerialisation of the world into what Jean Baudrillard would call ‘signs’ and ‘simulation’ is leaving our skin hungry for tangible experiences. I believe we are in a state of ﬂux between the real and digital with no collective foresight as to where the direction we’re going in will take us. The three dimensional images of the body, which are placed in a purgatory between real and virtual, are joined by abstract images of photographic chemicals and pixels. Directly comparing photographic materials and digital matter and taking physical body parts into a digital space results in surreal and innately contradictory images. The vacant fragmented body parts remind the embodied viewer of their own physicality and relationship to the tangible world.
