Chapter Summary

Chinese photo-imagery art, like that of other countries, stems from what is brought to it by professional artists. Image fabrication is possible because it surmounts or surpasses conventional photography. Image fabrication is already more than merely machine-generated image replication: it is a projection of an artist's conscious thought. The different types of image fabrication include: digital fabrication; parody of fabricating borders; borrowing objects (scenery) to speak; appropriation and deconstruction; and thought generation. Image fabrication as a methodology clearly shows the state and characteristics of photo-imagery art. It can also reflect the psychology of contemporary society, and it can, as well, enable one to enter the society, the consciousness, and the creativity of a photo-imagery artist. Photo-imagery art is, therefore, an important topic within the context of the history of art.
