Could it be that our world is just a construction – a manufactured illusion?

A few years ago, this existential discussion was limited to the academic world and science fiction. But things are changing. Bank of America recently issued a report to all of their customers in which they stated that the probability that we live in an artificial reality is between 20% and 50%. Tesla and founder, Elon Musk, believes that the chance that we do not live in a computer simulation is one in a billion.

The Merge visually explores the question: Is it possible that our physical reality does not exist as we believe it to, but instead life is a computer simulation?

The Merge is the second book of Sara Brincher Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen and Tobias Selnaes Markussen – three documentary based artists living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Throughout their projects the Sara, Peter & Tobias share and collaborate on every aspect of the process – from research, interviewing, and taking the actual pictures, to editing the final photos and designing the book.
