The render of the virtual landscape and beings are created in 3d modeling software. The real and unreal in this relation questions the understanding of the mimetic representation of the reality, the way of seeing, the faith in the power of technical image.
We see photography as an objective documentation, esspecially with realization that the image is captured by the machine itself. The creator’s function is limited to the activation of the apparatus and framing the cutout of the world.
In this image the view of the depicted masked character partially submerged into the water, his form is dissolving in the optical dostortion of the clear water. Virtual scene is enriched with this optical illlusion creating uncanny reality. The theme reffers to the works of symbolism era in fine art where the water always symbolized unconsciousness.
