Drowning Girl

May 4, 2019

In Requiem pour les Twin Towers (2002), Jean Baudrillard states that the Twin Towers cannot be replaced because one can imagine nothing equivalent that would be worthy of being destroyed.
Drowning Girl (2019) elaborates on the hyperreality of the collapse and its protagonists. It proposes a Post-Postmodern solution for Baudrillard’s problem by replacing the Twin Towers with multiple perfect replicas of the original pair transcending space and place driven by their vernacularity in virtuality.
