Hyperreal Territories

If we can feel a hyperreal environment, where and when can we see it? Is it even visible at all?

I began to think about the most basic images that confront us on a daily basis.  Can these images be considered signs? I hope to capture and isolate some of the frantic iteration that abounds on the Internet and trace it through the various stages that create hyper reality.  I use Baudrilliard’s idea of a map to provide structure for various arguments, investigations, and visual metaphors.  The map is a modified version of Carte du Tendrea 17th-century image produced by various hands that attempts to diagram another impossible territory — that of Love.
