I already knew this video... It was a good dove campaign to remind us the illusion where we live in.
I am doing a dissertation this year about the Hiperrealoty in Digital Art.
If anyone knows books, articles, websites, etc, that could help in this matter I would be appreciated.
Thanks, and nice post.
