Fragmented Reality reacts to its viewer’s movements and actions inside the exhibition space. A starting point of this work has been current discussions around the changing experiences of truth and reality with the abundance of available information ever expanding. Not unlike algorithms that shape the contents of our social media accounts based on the users’ actions, the presence and the choices of the viewer affect the exhibition’s content—its allegories of truth. The works are transformed and distort as the viewer approaches them.
Fragmented Reality asks if reality can be seen as anything but fragmented personal experiences, and what might follow if its value is undermined? Despite our awareness of the incalculable volume of available information, the idea and promise of reality are shadowed and blurred by constant and corporatised filtration. In the world of fake news, clickbait and content marketing, an opinion and a fact seem readily interchangeable.
