Pairing 3D modeling software with ray tracing, Clisset constructs and documents landscapes, creatures, objects, and scenarios. His prints depict an alternative reality inhabited by his creations, including his alter-ego of sorts, 'Fake Shamus'. This virtual universe is filled with the glistening surfaces of Lamborghinis and football helmets; floating knives, baseball bats, golf clubs, and metallic spheres; disintegrating forms frozen in motion. All of these suggest a world mediated by technology, controlled by commands and software, set into play by a power greater than itself and yet revealed to us by Clisset with an inflection of irony and humor.
