“When a digital camera is placed close to a computer screen we can discover a new disharmony. The intersection of the limits of the devices – the camera’s zoom and the screen’s resolution – creates blurry images. Having world flags on the screen to which the camera moves too close reminds the problem of having physically distinct but politically blurry borders between nations”

Nice work by Burak Arikan, but I think the visual aspect is much stronger than the conceptual. It’s an interesting technique for sure, but the actual images lose all their magic and emotion once it’s revealed what we’re looking at. A classic case of art and context. What do you think?
