> DESCRIPTION
sim·u·la·crum/ˌsimyəˈlākrəm/Noun
1. An image or representation of someone or something.
2. An unsatisfactory imitation or substitute. 
Projecting people onto people creates a primary and secondary identity in the image, which ultimately blurs the portrait into a singular simulated portrait. The projections and the subjects are individually relevant in the changing level of social awareness that the population is experiencing as a result of television programming. The portraits being projected can be viewed as iconic representations that have significant relevance to definitive ideas and values existent in society.  The people being projected onto are members of different social circles with a dynamic range in ethnicity, and roughly the same age. This narrative is a test of the viewers heightened sensitivity to the complex layers that manifest the realities threatening our simulated comfort caused by a lack of involvement in current issues facing human population.
