Abstract

Augmented Irreality is a collection of ceramic objects that examine the layers of simulation blurring our perceptions of reality and how consumerism, mass-media, and technological advancements contribute to this seamless integration of alteration. These works explore how technology changes how we interact with the world, and how a craving for reality can only be satiated with a false version we have defined as real. The intent of the exhibition is to call attention to the blurred line between the hyperreal fabricated by technology and the reality based-process of creation by a human hand, drawing parallels to the ways technology is distorting our perceptions of reality.
