Art as Transformer is an exploration into the relationships between painting, photography and the effect photography has on the way we interpret the world around us. The increase of mobile digital photography over the last 17 years has given rise to new forms of image making and manipulation, forming profound changes in our consciousness and shaping the way we view the world and our lives – particularly considering the many ways of changing digital images through various filters available today on our smartphones and computers, before we share on-line on the many social networks and platforms today.
This essay by Adam Grose seeks to explore the ways the media seek to exploit our perception of reality through digital imagery and the embedding of unknown appetites which seek to enrapture us, via the shamans of the commercial industries seeking profit, leading to a state of Hypernormalisation.

Art as Transformer is available as a paperback and a Kindle ebook download. If you are a Prime of Kindle Unlimted subscriber this ebook is free as a member. More images available from Amazon or
