I see what i see when i see
Through which process can someone invoke seeing? Apart from the eyes as a sensitive perceptive organ, does the act of seeing require a more complicated, multilevelled mental procedure? My perception of the environment so called external reality, depends not only on the information delivered by/from the objects of my surrounding world to the receptors of my senses, but also from the conscious or subconscious choice I make on the information given. I perceive by infiltrating, by evaluating, accepting or rejecting. My brain, my body, my self, is always taking some information in, leaving information out. In that project, I use a polarising filter to create a circular play for my sight. The image of one, same object, can become visible or not in front of the same pair of eyes. The decision to take information in, to interact with my surrounding, shapes my own image of the world. What I see, when I see, is what I am.
