My MFA thesis show Rosetta Stones - Deciphering the Real, was an investigation of photography in the digital world. I would like to address in this thesis the possibility of using photography to investigate the digital world in which we began to live in not too long ago. I want to show the current new imaging status of photography and the direction it might move in the development of digital technology. Today, art coexists and develops alongside science and technology. The main purpose, as well as the starting point of this thesis, is recognizing that mechanically produced images can have aesthetic value when related to the digital realm of imaging. This relationship of the photographic and post-photographic or digital was an important step in my thesis work and points toward my future interest in exploring the art and science of old and new representations.
