This series depict flooded departments of a hospital. Rendered through tri-dimensional software without any photographic reference, these works question the documentary traits of photography. Through the simulation of photography, the works state that the photography‘s representation of past events and the meanings bestowed upon it have no reflections on the photograph itself. The rooms contain image of screens, X-ray devices and body-scanning machines. The works emphasize the relationship between these images that are considered scientific; focusing on the relations between context, meaning and interpretation within the positivist tradition of the image. At this point, I‘ve realized the importance of “noise“ in the production of photographic reality. Just like the pixellation of low-quality digital images, noise possesses a cultural significance than simply a technical error. When added on a meretricious computer image, not only it renders representation natural and realistic, but it also alters its history.
