Boring Postcards From Italy by COLL.EO (2016)

To create Boring Postcards from Italy, COLL.EO has collected more than one hundred of the most boring images from Forza Horizon 2. The result is a book that, in sharp contrast to the title, fascinates and surprises. Boring Postcards from Italy redefines the relationship between reality and simulation with “postcards” that are “boring” both in content and composition. The project is an appropriation and homage to Martins Parr’s seminal Boring Postcards series: a commentary on videogame architecture, tourism and simulation, photography and representation. It is, above all, a provocation.
