Beyond Perception, 2012
This piece is all about what happens outside of our usual expectations. When we use our senses to perceive something our brains are often filling in the blanks, which is a result of conditioning. After this our attention is pulled towards somewhere else. This work utilises the idea of framing, especially in the context of film, to challenge the viewers understanding of what happens beyond the conventional frame. In this instance, negative space is used to accentuate the frame.
Typically, our brains are conditioned to figure out what happens from one cut to another and we often don’t really consider the physical transition of a subject between those spaces. In this work I break down that barrier and force the brain to look at what else lies beyond its perception.
