“A Model for the world-A world that’s a model”

The title for this work is “A Model for the world-A world that’s a model” completed in 2014, the imagery of the art work based around photographed image’s of Flinders street station taken by myself on a canon 50D, appropriated  images of soldiers, sheep and an African man being detained are all off the internet and have been manipulated to look like toy soldiers, this helps retain the idea that we are living in a simulated world of man made objects and ideologies, taking reference from Jean Baudrillards “simulations and simulacra” and plato’s writing’s in genral.
