----------------------------------------------------------------

The​ ​Authentic​ ​Fake​​ ​is​ ​the​ ​culmination​ ​of​ ​a​ ​programme​ ​exploring​ ​the​ ​nature​ ​of​ ​reality.​ ​After looking​ ​into​ ​the​ ​way​ ​we​ ​receive​ ​and​ ​decipher​ ​sensorial​ ​information​ ​in​ ​Decoding​ ​Sensations and​ ​diving​ ​into​ ​altered​ ​states​ ​of​ ​consciousness​ ​with​ ​[IN]sane,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​turning​ ​our​ ​eyes​ ​to​ ​the world​ ​of​ ​hyperreality, where the real has been replaced by its own representation.

The​ ​current​ ​state​ ​of​ ​technology,​ ​the​ ​explosion​ ​of​ ​information​ ​and​ ​mass​ ​media,​ ​the dissolution​ ​of​ ​the​ ​materiality​ ​of​ ​objects,​ ​and the​ ​primacy​ ​of​ ​images​ ​in​ ​Western​ ​societies, have changed the way we define ourselves both individually and collectively. We are using the idea of hyperreality to question and destabilise concepts such as identity, gender, veracity, origins and social order, touching on subjects like simulation & copy, collective narratives, organic vs inorganic, fact & fantasy, and the consequences in social and political discourse.
