From the publisher: "The creation of seamless illusion remains a driving tenet of Hollywood cinema. In order to preserve this illusion, no disruptions of cinematic space and time can be allowed. After collecting these discarded photographs from the Warner Brothers 10930's film sets, Divola began to group the randomly found images in haunting installations of fictive reality."
