Recollections No. 5: Intuition

Intuition

It is always a daunting, emotional exercise beginning a new project, and this one began in the spring of 2013 as I began to explore the human conception–and illusion–of memory. That’s a big project, and a complex one to boot, since memory is both tough to define as well as difficult to understand. In a nutshell, it boils down to this: What is reality, and what is perception? Or are they the same thing?

    1. James, you’d be in good company with that opinion, one furthered by logic and science. Another viewpoint, popular among anthropologists, is that ALL reality is perception and social construction. Both are valid and supportable, and this dichotomy is one of the key ideas this project examines; I wish you could make the opening to see the actual pieces in action, and you’d see what I mean. Hint: the show is part sociological manipulation.

  1. Yep, the show is in America. However, I’ll be posting images of the actual installation (there’s another hint) after it goes up, so all hope is not lost. 😉
