Images of Experience
Photographs, 2017, various formats
Project deals with aesthetic concept of visual perception as a sensual experience. I investigate the process of undergoing an experience on the part of both the artist and the spectator. Each of the images is hinting at some of the phenomenon or visual archetype. I analyze the influence of environments of perception and the effects of (neuro-)physical processes in the eye and brain. In the current era of image (and never-ending stream of visual media all around us), understanding of those processes is more important than ever. The main references come from the writings of John Dewey, John Berger and neuro-scientists such as Ladislav Kesner. Work is a part of my current PhD art-based research project.
