Flying and Floating by Robert Overweg

Robert Overweg is a photographer who captures the virtual worlds of first and third person shooter games. He sees the virtual world as the new public space of a contemporary society focused on spending time in their virtual worlds. Overweg’s latest series Flying and Floating documents the virtual world by foot or by air. By photographing the virtual world, Overweg is able to achieve photographs that would not be possible in the natural world, but he also documents the limitations of the virtual world. According to Overweg’s artist statement, by “continuing to photograph in the virtual world I am trying to find new ways to photograph in and through the virtual world. Trying to achieve the image where a photograph becomes more than the game.”
