World 153, Exploration A

Composite, half flower and half woman’s face.

In World 153, everyone is infected with a disease due to the outbreak of a pandemic. This resulted in people having x-ray vision where they can now only see the world in greyscale.

Focused on the idea of split reality, the images explore the blurred lines between what is perceived to be true and what is, in fact, false.

XREISM is a brand project centred on exposing fake news and shedding light on the lack of transparency in both the media and the fashion industry.

“Define your truth” – We encourage consumers to be critical in information received; to challenge news presented and to discern what truth means to them.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
