Capturing images is not a nostalgic representation, an artistic product or a testimonial documentation of life; it is all, none and much more. Visual communication serves as key factor for the social regeneration of our cyber era. A moment in reality and a photograph are often interpreted as equivalent or even identical fragments. Visual media is based upon this aspect, only with a tiny bit of a twist.

Media’s fast spread constructed reality formations portray optical illusions that effortlessly manage to force visual addiction.

Although, we do not necessarily accept dealing with the dilemma by questioning the feed. Let me explain: what we visually consume lingers between the uncertainty of what we see and the notion of comprehending what we see, resulting to the need of seeing more and more.
