Sam Heydt

Illusion does not free us from reality. My photographic work is united by its unconventional exploration of semiology and its role in cementing a cultural phenomenology of consumerism, corporal commodification and a mythology of a fictional past. Ironically employing the very medium I critique, my images speak to the decay, disillusionment and disenchantment of the social psyche at the hands of the media apparatus.
