What is Real

When going over the pages of Simulations for this project the idea that really stuck out was that of hyper-reality.  I was thinking about this one night on the way back from the Bar’s when the idea hit me that even the real world around us can be quite surreal.  Therefore in this project I wanted to try and pull that surreality out and put it on display.  I did this by walking around town looking for things that just seem like they should not exist in the way they do.  Then from there I took these images and over saturated the colors in order to make it seem that much more hyper-real.  I really enjoyed this project and think that I was able to make my vision a reality.


  1. I enjoy the colors that you used in your stills. I cannot wait to see the finished product.

  2. Your project was interesting to me because the subject matter itself appeared to be very normal and mundane. It was in your editing and our seeing that the scenes turned into unreal, unnatural, weird images. Good work!
