Constructed from appropriated digital content originally intended to promote the artificial island networks The Palm, The World and the Palm Jumeirah off the coast of Dubai – Imagineering Icarus seeks to explore the relationships between the digital image, dreams/illusions of absolute control of the lived environment and the fabrication of desire.
The digital image exists as data; utterly malleable not previously existing in nature – an extension of human will and through it the physical environment is presented as malleable, compliant in it’s technological harness – subject to the will of the select few.
“Those who can offer the opportunity to own the sunset on another perfect day.”
