Michael Massaia: Signals Crossed Portfolio

Signals Crossed” is an original portfolio of un-manipulated photographic imagery. With LED billboard advertising proliferating, what advertiser would think a few seconds of on ad captured photographically would portray not just their paid message, but reveal these images of the unseen and surreal lurking within their computer controlled message? One clearly sees phantasmagorical forms of waterfalls, cloud patterns and fireworks set against a realistic rendering of a still object amidst a Dalinian landscape. The artist’s ability to render these as an ethereal hidden code supplants the intended message of the medium and creates another body of work forever altering our perception and experience of reality.
