Hyper-Active is an exhibition by photography alumni of Parsons The New School for Design from the US, China, and around the world, featuring work that reaches across multiple generations and multiple working methodologies. The exhibition examines varying notions of hyper-reality as it currently exists in post-digital contemporary photographic practice. From the hyper-fantastical to the hyper-clarity of the mundane, these images provide an insight into the way our vision has shifted in the last decade.
