Through developments in digital technology, photography has been freed once and for all from the rigid conventions of Realism. Like life itself, it is not capable of representing not just what is real, but what is possible.
The buzz and excitement generated by media technologies are but a logical reaction in a culture steeped in materialism: it creates the illusion that we can reduce every mental act into matter, with no regard to how poor or incomplete that alchemy might be. As the technology progresses and the possibility of manipulating and communicating exclusively with images grows, mental spaces will be eradicated, fixed into flattened expanses of unambiguous surfaces.
