With the ‘Love Island/ Balcony’ project my aim is to reconstruct / translate, in virtual space, components taken from real space reality television, a medium whose core premise is the interplay between real and pretend. I chose Love Island because it represents this genre wonderfully - assertive styling, stage lighting, lurid sets and synthetic contestants, and farcical plot twists - and the striking visuals all of this produces.
