Is it a Polaroid or is it just reality?
Parallel Worlds | O. S. Scholten | 1979–2021

Oliver S. Scholten

In the works of the series “Parallel Worlds”, which was created mainly between 2000 and 2005, real shots are combined with photographed television images from daily news programs, film sequences and advertising blocks. The combination of blocks of four creates a balance between reality and fiction, which can often no longer be resolved. The viewer connects, develops and decides the story that takes place for himself; Visual specifications, color and shape combinations of the pictures also play a role, as do the given picture content and the viewer’s own, very personally pre-shaped picture world.

Media, desired, real and advertising images merge and develop into a new statement. Everything is like a slowly evolving Polaroid.

The elaboration of the images shown in mainly 4 x 18×18 cm blocks is based on scans of the individual originals. @olivers.scholten
