If All You Have Is Your Eyes
What do we understand of the ‘real’ world when we look at it? Far from providing us with pure, straightforward information, seeing is a complex sensory and cognitive mechanism. This project explores our over-reliance on the sense of sight when getting to know what is new or unfamiliar. The recent health, political and climatological crises have amplified the importance of navigating the spectrum of ‘truthiness’ that exists between the notions of opinion and belief, fact and fiction, conspiracy and evidence. The images emphasize the mechanics of misjudgment, the fragmentary nature of human knowledge and its incompleteness. A contemporary take on a philosophical question that invites us to see beyond appearances.
