Abstract

This document is the written component accompanying the Constructing Realities art exhibition. The five interactive digital art installations encourage participants to investigate various fundamental elements of photography. By exploring these component parts, a greater overall understanding of the power of photography over our perceived realities can be gained.

This document describes the artist's creative intention. Major historic and contemporary philosophic and artistic influences are identified and analyzed. Included are postmodern theories related to reality and contemporary interactive artists, in order to place and explain the exhibition's relevance. The themes and processes that were employed to create this exhibition are explained and documented. The artwork examines the impact elements of photography have on our understanding of reality.
