PHOTOTECHNE INTERNATIONAL

"Proto-Aesthetic Apparatus. The proliferation of semiotics and simulacra after the deconstruction of syntax and analytic aesthetics through processes of commodification."

Emergent Digital Aesthetics. The images are a collaborative project of the inter-textuality of photography, a politico-economic institution, simulacra in the Corporeal Information Age, and a counter post-data through the index of the image, the nexus between the end of history and progressive aestheticization.
