Phoney Sights


A reflection of contemporary society through manipulated moving images.

A satiric critique of the current social and political changes that are happening in Slovenia, in Europe and in the World aesthetically explored through (de)formation of landscapes and cityscapes. Phoney Sights considers social and political issues and even science when searching for an answer to the questions: Where are we? and Where are we going?
