Fragile Fantasy considers the field of image production surrounding video games. This exhibition examines the production of fan-art and its appropriation of models and image assets from games.

 

Fragile Fantasy brings together a collection of photographs combining digital and analogue processes. They feature characters and objects that have been hacked from games and reconstructed in commercial 3D modelling software. The images are then re-photographed and printed in the darkroom on analogue, black and white paper. The compositions draw from a number of genres of photography, from the vernacular to post-mortem photography.
