Sight is our most dominant sense. 80% of our perception of the world is influenced by sight alone. As a result, we are heavily dependant on light to enable us to see the world around us. However, when confronted with a dark room, alley or even a video, we turn to other senses to explore that which is before us. The darkness causes us to rethink and change the way we look. Even when a small light source is returned, until we can grasp the full image, we rely on other means to perceive it.
I am fascinated by limited perception.
Like humanity, Art strongly relies on sight. I aim to challenge this through projects by limiting or taking away the principal sense that the works rely on. Dark photos, sculptures portrayed as photographs or invisible objects made visible are the way in which I explore this. It is important to realise that there is often a bigger picture to explore no matter the scope of vision we have.
