MachiniMediated [2008]

Inside a video game (Garry’s Mod), I arranged props and cameras to create replicas of some of the photos I have taken.

Games are meant to be abstractions of reality. Photographs are meant to capture the feeling of a single moment in time. With these ideas in mind, I wanted to find out if some of the same feelings could be communicated through a photograph taken inside a simulated space as they could through a similar photo taken in the real world.
