Artist Statement:


    Referring to the metaphorical bond between technology and nature, the film questions the realities we create using constructed and very similar illusive imagery that erase the line between real and artificial, obvious and mysterious, finding beauty in synthetic experiences. It questions our current obsession with a memory, which often becomes more important than the event itself. The title suggests the idea of neglected moments being put together to create, morphing from one form to another, the thread of digital existence. Synthetic Curiosities is an exploration of the contemporary friction, made through repetition and slight shifts. Our common contemporary identity is formed through repetition of events, blurring the line between the real and digital.
