How awesome are Alex Fischer digital collages !? He composes his figures and landscapes by assembling a variety of visual and conceptual sources. Keeping in mind that ideas of the future are inevitably the fastest to change, Fischer maintains that human nature is a fallible and susceptible state.His series ‘Smarter Today’ offers a human view of futurist landscapes, a view that explores the ideologies and projections of society through the lens of contemporary art.
Technological advancement and machine generations have vastly outpaced the tradition of the average human life. As a society, we have adapted to accept the pace at which vast differences and contrasts will influence our modes of being.
The subjects and characters of ‘Smarter Today’ are reflections on the syncretism that created them. Their exterior identities have been extricated to include all of their precursors. They are heterogeneous and intermingled with their environments, yet maintain their subjectivity in the face of a post-structuralist world.
