According to a recent UN study, 2007 marks the
first point in history that the world's urban
population will outnumber the rural population. The
physical and cultural migrations resulting from this
shift are explored by a group of emerging photo-
based artists in Constructed City. The artists have
captured the new urban realities by employing
digital manipulation, staging, and by fusing the
photographic medium with collage, paint, and
sculpture. Illuminated themes include; pollution,
consumerism, identity and communication.
