Flying and Floating by Robert Overweg

Robert Overweg is a photographer in the virtual world, he sees the worlds of (first and third person shooter) games as the new public space of contemporary society and as a direct extension of the physical world. Here is Overweg latest series Flying and Floating.Overweg dwells either by foot or by air through the outskirts of the virtual world which he dissects through his photography. He makes use of the new possibilities which the virtual world gives him for his photography but he also documents the limitations of the virtual world

Artist Statement:
Continuing to photograph in the virtual world I am trying to find new ways to photograph in and through the virtual world. Trying to achieve the image where a photograph becomes more than the game. No editing or collage involved.
