CYBORG SERIES 001 - 0028  

Pete K. Landis began creating these collages in early 2020 and continued through the stay-at-order during the COVID 19 global pandemic. The series imagines 2020 through the lens of 50s and 60s futurism merged with current realities and technologies. 

Fashion magazine pages are altered with an exacto knife to present the viewer with a "the future is now" cyborg. My definition of Cyborg: A human altered and enhanced by technology. Additional two dimensional images and three dimensional objects are placed "in the scene" to either draw the eye or distract the eye from the main figure. The entire composition is created by an analog process on a classic green cutting mat. These scenes were created in anticipation of being photographed and the process was not too different from creating a classic "still life" photograph.

The still life scene is then photographed. The analog collage now exists as a digital photograph. The next step in the process is adding the digital matte border, title, and "standard" digital alterations such as adjusting the exposure, contrast, color balance, etc. The obvious calling card for all of these digital photo manipulations is the green cutting mat changing hues and vibrancy. 

A few of the final images also include an obvious duplication, or obvious alteration to further blur the line between what the viewer understands to be analog vs digital. - Pete Landis
