In his artistic work Morten Barker examines and explores the limits on how the image distorts the reality we know. Barker creates images based on war film landscapes, which are articulated through the fictional and the documentary. Through digital manipulation and sampling of screenshots the artist creates an ambiguity in which geography, depth of field and time are blurred.
