Constructing Realities

For your next project (a series of 4-6 images) I would like you to construct an environment that would not exist otherwise and investigate it through photographs. This environment may be based on a dream, or conversation you found interesting, or it may be inspired by real events. For inspiration check out the following artists works:

Thomas Demand (an article about his work can be found here) he constructs sets entirely out of paper. They are made to look like offices and laboratories.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard (read further here) uses simple tools such as masks to unsettle the suburban settings of his childhood.

Taryn Simon (read here) inspired by true stories of those incarcerated when innocent has created a series of images that imagines the “criminals” in the location where a crime took place.
