Montreal-based artist Benoit Paillé has created the art project “Crossroad of Realities” where he took photos of gorgeous landscapes within the video game Grand Theft Auto V and then overlaid these images with photographs of real people holding real cameras and other devices so that it appears as if they are taking the landscape photos themselves. The purpose of this was to blend the virtual reality with material reality in such a way as to question the boundaries of each.

Crossroad of Realities

“During the project I ask myself a lots of question about the possible disappearance of the photographic medium as we know it. Our environment tends to be more and more dematerialized, workspaces are now to be found in the Cloud, relationships and social exchanges take place increasingly in virtual networks , while gamers compete on online networks.” — Benoit Paillé
