Daniel Leivick: "Heliopolis"

Saturday, March 09 - 10:25AM to 10:45AM
Honore Ballroom

Daniel Leivick's photographic project, Heliopolis, endeavors to create a fictional desert city where the distinctions between traditional dualities of myth and reality, rationalism and madness and annihilation and transcendence are called into question. In Heliopolis, ambiguous symbols and nearly recognizable forms emerge from the interaction between human and machine. Using a variety of techniques including imagery appropriated from the internet, security camera footage and traditional photographic imagery, Heliopolis explores the ambiguous relationship between mechanical vision and society; a relationship in which the very nature of perspective is slowly shifting.. It attempts to ask the question: Is this human?
