Product Description

Virtual Transparency explores the ambiguous interaction between reality and virtuality, set amongst the inimitable backdrop of Manhattan’s skyscrapers and utilizing contemporary architectural methods and materials.

With photography as the core of his artistic practice, the artist re-appropriates portions of urban architecture to create a series of amorphous, abstracted representations of corporate infrastructure. The proximity of the buildings in Manhattan and other big metropolis like it, together with an architectural phenomenon known as “glazing distortions” or “roller waves” caused by the curvature of glass facades allow light to reflect and refract on certain building surfaces. Between beams of light, refracted from one facade to another, the real and virtual conflict, revealing a portal-like dimension.
