Tourist series- The cave of Plato
The transport cabin takes group after group of travelers to different areas of the world. The parable of Plato’s Cave is borrowed to explore the relationship between people of different backgrounds and behaviors who find themselves in the same space. At well-known sites in each of the destinations, I stand apart from the crowd, taking in the scene from a distance, watching the scene as if watching shadows projected onto a wall at the back of a cave. The travelers seem to think they come to the place to take pictures to capture the spirit of a place for their memories. Are these images illusions or real?
