This Is The Construct

This Is The Construct

Posted to Flickr on 28 December 2013.

In the film The Matrix Morpheus describes “the construct,” an empty white environment into which his crew can load whatever reality they need.

In the latter part of 2013 my family moved into a new home, and my wife and children were gracious enough to allow me to claim one of the rooms for my photography. And then for Christmas my wife gave me new photography gear: a tabletop background support stand and a roll of bright white backdrop paper.

And so in a way I was given my own version of “the construct,” a dedicated place in my home for creating other realities and sharing them with you. I’m grateful to my family for this gift.


Morpheus has also described the construct in these places:

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
