Lenker writes: I explore the hyper reality of our current lives. Content is layered and intersected by ideas based on virtual identity within online geographies, religion and mythology, psychology and gender identity. I am interested in the prevalence of isolation and disconnection in an increasingly connected world and the impact of loss of intimacy within that space. We live in a world which is becoming increasingly intertwined with a virtual/digital space. Truth can be wildly different based on the layer of an online/virtual reality which affects how we see the events happening around us. I'm interested in the mechanisms behind this distortion. What is "real" in this "post truth world"?
