“With future forecasts declaring ultimate doom from all components of the man-altered world, it seems there is a clog in the conduit of information transmitted between those in control and the public at large. Black Ops, psychological torture, acoustic weapons, Project Starfire, and a multitude of other state sponsored programs exist, well-hidden in plain sight, shrouded in a stigma of conspiracy and diluting any significant public inquiry.
Psych Securities LLC is an ongoing exploration of this aforementioned covert reality, most clearly seen while in an alternative psychological state. By compiling declassified documents, historical narratives, and psychedelic conjecture, a visual world is pieced together; undermining strategies of deception and concealed truths.
The images, as photographic composites, mimic this process. The traditions of large format picture taking are practiced (by way of staging, model building, and location photography) and combined with digital synthesis, to render an optically clear, hyperactive final image. The project’s modular presentation allows clustered photographs to resemble the structure of the intelligence networks that have inspired a number of the depictions themselves.” – Gerald Edwards III
