Super-real Photographs

Fuse is a series of algorithmically generated collages of everyday views. They are created by smoothly stitching together many different digital photographs of the same sites, using a custom algorithm. The results appear to be quite realistic, but not quite—the attentive viewer soon realises that some things do not add up, and the illusion of reality and authenticity falters.

The work consists of several parts with different formats: A selection of still images is printed on 20 by 20 cm boards. A variety of serial images are printed on photo paper in 10 by 15 cm and shown in a photo album. The third part is an animation which shows ‘infinite landscapes’ that are continuously stitched together in real-time.
