Elaine Whittaker BIOFICTION
Digital photography based on medical & scientific objects and fictional specimens.
We live in a porous world, in porous bodies. The possibility of being breached, infected, and losing body integrity is always present.
BioFiction is a series of digital images based on re-visiting a series of boxes containing medical/scientific objects and fictional specimens.
Blurring the boundaries between the organic and inorganic, the animate and inanimate, the real and the manufactured, the objects become images of a synthesized fictional biological narrative. Photographically, they ultimately converge as a matrix disease – infection as architecture.
"Welcome to the real world."
Morpheus, The Matrix (1999)
