Puppeteer Posted August 21, 2013 Report Share Posted August 21, 2013 Oneohtrix Point Never, an artist I like whose music in a way deals a lot with detachment from the self and reality - artistically arranging samples and synths in something of both an homage to and critique of how computer/Internet-technology is shaping the world and with it our humanism. So I guess intentionally or not one can draw parallels to the sentiment of the actual music and DP/DR, but I digress. (link in onedayillsailagain's post below) It's essentially a collection of (for the most part) pictures very-realistically 3D rendered objects of varying significane and mundaneness, but at the same time you're aware the images are computer-generated copies of the objects on a 2D plane. The feeling a person without DP/DR (i.e. me circa just over a year ago) seeing these replicas might experience - some kind of clash of distinct familiarity with distance, alienness, unreality - is very similar to the sensation I experience when looking at anything in the world; as though everything is an incredibly faithful yet somehow unreal version of what I know the object to me, like every frame of my vision could be a screenshot used in this video. It's just a lot more scary when you know they aren't images someone's created with 3D software. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
