What Are Simulacra?



What Are Simulacra?  

Random combinations of light and shadow form random shapes against backgrounds such as rock, sky, water, trees, glass, stonework and any other textured objects. This is known as matrixing.  


When these patterns come together and form images that strongly resemble something else, this likeness is known as a ‘simulacrum’.   


The human eye as an extension of the brain is always trying to make sense of the objects around it. Finding familiar patterns and labelling them is part of the brain’s job, especially when it comes to faces.  


There’s a definite tendency towards labelling simulacra (plural) in photographs as paranormal, and this gives sceptics and hostile parties plenty of valid ammunition. 


Naturally there are simulacra in my work, but there are also many genuine anomalous images.
