Reality In Between

Richard Kolker: With this series I am trying to explore the boundary between the real and the unreal. I am particularly fascinated by situations and circumstances that cause us to ‘re-set’ our parameters of what we associate as ‘reality’. The most obvious, of course, is the almost unbelievable horror of 9.11, when the reality of what was happening before our eyes was so much harder to acknowledge than if it were not taking place at all. This phenomenon can, I think, happen in far less horrific circumstances too. Incidental moments in our lives when something unusual; bizarre, beautiful, disturbing, catches our eye. The images take the form of visual notes and are CGI sketches of thoughts and ideas free from having to pass through the ‘real’ world as photographs.
