Exit Strategy

Written by Patrick Chevalier. Posted in Exit Strategy

Using images accumulated since the acquisition of several capturing devices and collected from family photo albums Exit Strategy presents an exhibition of photo mash-ups studying the principles of hybridization.

The digital images are overlapped or mashed-up with fragments of external imagery that are selected from all types of sources offline and online.  The purpose of this hybridising is meant to be an appropriation of the synthesis of meaning.  Because the synthesis of imagery is endemic in the digital age and is beginning to be more automated I felt it important reacquire means of manipulation the image and the meaning of my images.  To create my own impacting imagery and narrative.
