Ginger Burrell: "Virtual/Reality began with a discussion with my niece about the amazing landscapes along the Northern California coast. She told me, 'I don't need to go there, I can just look at pictures on my computer.' In Virtual/Reality haiku, paired with original photographs, argues that virtual will never replace reality."

Is the irony intentional?
