What do you really see?
I am interested in the notion of using methodological experimentation within an image in order to abstract and play with the visible and invisible through obstruction. The need to deconstruct the representational character of the photograph and to expand its conventional limits respectively has been triggered by predominantly German and French philosophers views on "seeing" and perception, which are consciously and subconsciously absorbed to later emerge and being translated into visual language. Ambiguity is leading to abstraction and perceptional puzzlement. [the artist] gives something for the eye to feed on, but he invites the person to whom this picture is presented to lay down his gaze there as one lays down one's weapons. (Lacan, 1998)
