How does one mimic the contradiction between the digital world and the physical world, to toe the line between what is real and what is not?

With this project, I aimed to recreate the sense of limbo that is present in digital rendering work today. I aimed to tease out a dichotomy between fantasy and reality in a series of photographs–challenging the viewer to draw their own conclusions. This is important to me, because no matter the medium, a little bit of "weird" always goes a long way to create captivating content.

The nature of staged compositions is one that allows viewers to remove themselves entirely from preconceived notions of what an object should be.  The audience can then examine objects as their composite elements of color and tactility rather than their purpose. Ultimately, the dichotomy between natural and manufactured qualities inspire a sense of pause and head tilt.
