This series investigates the concept of perception.
‘Insight’ explores the paradox of how a group of people, when confronted with the same image, may all see something completely different.
In this work I explore the cognitive processes that one must undergo in order to understand an image and how this is dependent on the factor of ‘knowledge’.
I gave each of these photographs to a friend and asked them to write down a list of things that came to mind – directly linking it to the knowledge they had acquired during their studies. For this experiment I ensured that I collected information from a range of areas to study, including the Sciences, the Humanities and the Arts.
