The Real

Ceiling, Dixie Square Mall, 2010

The absurdity of trying to capture a ‘real’ only leads to fiction. Any representation is therefore ‘romantic’. Reality is solid – hard form which humankind has always attempted to render/replicate. In that process we seen the arts flourish into a post modern society, one which our very language is one where a virtual may become more significant than the real (though the real has a wonderful way of slapping us back).

Slavoj Žižek says ‘The real is impossible to imagine’.
