Great concept - where would you like to head with this, what game-scapes? And would you be interested in building your own digital environments?
Taking photographs is my way of exploring and testing the bounds of digital environments, and it’s the taking that’s an important part of the experience, it crystallises part of the realism of these spaces for me, as does developing film and printing photos. It all adds tangibility, and it’s a great way to play games too!
At the moment I’m interested in getting at some of the photographic styles and techniques that haven’t yet seen action in virtual photography, as well as what styles and techniques can be created through the manipulation of these virtual spaces.
I could try that kind of constructed reality photography, where I made the scenes I wanted to photograph, but if I made my own digital environments it would only be to take them apart and I’d probably want to use them for something other than photography.
I turned some of my JSRF photos into Polaroid-style prints for an art project I’m currently working on, something interesting to me about spaces that aren’t really spaces, photographed with a retro camera that isn’t really a retro camera, appearing on Polaroids that aren’t really Polaroids.
Anyway, sorry for the lack of activity of late, many more photos are on the way and I’ll be posting more of my project too.
yaoguai asked: More... :(
Some new stuff will be coming very soon, I just need to pick the best ones.
