Soap and Rocket
Episode 1, Fake Phoney Realty (Orange title text)
Repetition and comparison abstract the purpose of an‘original’ photograph into something different, dislocated and uncontrollable. Identikit compositions show what we want to see and all we need to know. So we displace the exponential reality that a composite of image, promotional aesthetic and memory create; and store it elsewhere – relinquishing our memory and its memories to a anonymous server somewhere, anywhere. There’s ‘No neo, no post’ – just popular representation that’s even better than the real thing. And We Are Consumed. By a sequencing and accumulation of events, not the events themselves. We have lost control!! Plus ça change.
