Imagining traces the source of romantic constructs and semblances to consider how imagery seeps into our romantic desires. By exacerbating the objecthood of imagery, this exhibition stands as a museology of a singular image as it may exist in the future. Photographs sourced from the Visual Collections Repository at Concordia University study figural archetypes and code. Images and vestiges transform into modern imaginations that yield to the realities of obsession and the deceitfulness of myth. The projects tells its story only through a continuous scroll of Facebook code, that if deciphered, contains the data between two people who have no posts in common.
