Artist Statement:


    Combining photography with computer-rendered images, Falling Apart wants to challenge people’s trust in their own perceptions. Photography has traditionally been seen as the most accurate medium of representing reality. Computer rendering of images is now the most perfect medium to simulate reality. By mixing representation and simulation, this film creates contrasting levels of illusion in order to raise questions about the truthfulness or falseness of what is being shown. Falling Apart wants to show how much our perception can be manipulated.
