The work of Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer considers the field of image production surrounding video games. Focusing on the culture of hacking and “modding”, it examines the production of fan-art and its appropriation of models and image assets from games.
'Fragile Fantasy' brings together a collection of Aloisio-Shearer’s photographs combining digital and analogue processes. They feature characters and objects that have been hacked from games and reconstructed in commercial 3D modelling software. The images are then re-photographed and printed in the darkroom on discontinued black and white paper. They feature everyday social situations, including characters eating together, or playing musical instruments, as well as erotic scenarios and non-descript landscapes.
