Neo: This... this isn’t real?Morpheus: What is real? How do you define real? If you’re talking about what you can compose, what you can expose, what you can dodge and burn, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your sensor. You’ve been living in a dream world, Neo. This is the world as it exists today. Welcome, to the desert.. of the real. We have only bits and pieces of information, but what we know for certain is that at some point in the late twentieth century all of mankind was united in celebration. We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to Photoshop. We don’t know who struck first, us or them. But we know that it was us that scorched the sky with magenta. At the time they were dependent on Yosemite, and it was believed that they would be unable to survive without an image source as abundant as a glacially carved valley. Throughout photographic history, we have been dependent on mountains to shoot. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony. A dune field generates more visitation than a mountain lake and over 25,000 CR2s of potential compositions. Combined with an elevated perspective, photographers had found all the subjects they would ever need. There are fields, Neo. Endless fields, where compositions are no longer born... they’re blown. For the longest time I wouldn’t believe it, and then I saw the fields with my own eyes. Watched them liquify the peaks in post so they could be fed electronically to social media. And standing there, facing the pure horrifying precision of luminosity masks, I came to realize the obviousness of the truth. What is TK8? Control. TK8 is a computer generated mask panel, built to keep our pixels under control, in order to change a dune field... into this. *holds up SD card*Neo: No. I don’t believe it. It’s not possible.Morpheus: I didn’t say it would be easy, Neo. I just said it would be the truth.Neo: No. Stop. Let me out. Let me out. I want out!*wakes up in a darkroom*
