Click to digitally enhance a digital composite Murdoch news puppet
The first in a new series exposing media frontmen and associated people who rely absolutely on digital means of transmission of their weasel words and images to the gawping pizza-munching masses, in order to maintain “specialness” , high public profile and fame ( politicians, actors etc ) … by lifting the broadcasters’ propaganda mask of “real-ness” in analysis and scrutiny of its bare bones component parts ( by breaking down into pixelation ) that allows a glimpse into the “really real ” behind today’s tawdry media – ie a phantasmagorical illusion of zeros and ones.
“When you know the false to BE false
you will auto-know Existence – the Real, the True”
Update; 2016. Six years on, artists Rob & Nicky Carter appear to have picked up on Michael St. Mark’s original concept of the digital composite portrait, only to degrade its morality-based social commentary purport to that of mere tawdry special effects comprising digital composites of artists and famous individuals from the past that are copied into a traditional painting format by commissioned Chinese painters.
Yet another update, 8 years on to 2018 and Saatchi Art promoting digital print based painter Matthieu Leger’s work as a major new contribution to painting.
