Synopsis
Phoney Sights is a satiric critique of the current social and political changes that are happening locally, in Europe and in the World aesthetically explored through (de)formation of landscapes and cityscapes. Phony Sights considers social and political issues and even quantum physics when searching for an answer to the questions: Where are we? and Where are we going?
