Working primarily with photography, and deconstructing virtual spaces, Alexander Burgess’ practice explores the relationship between the role that photography takes in understanding the virtual worlds manufactured by autonomous systems. His works appropriate small fragments of these digital surfaces, mainly automated digital mapping, through screenshots and screen capturing, and examine the shift of medium from photographic, to the inevitable fabrication of the surface through processes of averaging, cloning and repetition.
