Photographs, Synthetic Collages, 2018
“Fuse” is a series of algorithmically generated collages of everyday views. The synthetic images are created from many different photos from the same sites by rather simple, custom algorithms. The results appear to be quite realistic, but not quite—the attentive viewer soon realises that some things in them do not add up, and the illusion of reality (or the representation thereof) falters.
The work consists of still images and an animation. The latter shows an infinite landscape which is continuously stitched together in real-time.
