What does it mean to see? How does visual perception yield knowledge of the world around us?

Unscene is a multi-media installation intended to reveal the haptic expression of visual input. Through film and a series of conceptual works, we experiment with preconceived visual associations and play with unexpected visual and sensory input. What results is a visual journey that challenges our perceptions of places and things in a manner both surprising and comforting at once, exposing the depth and complexity of our capacity to see in new ways.

The Studies, I-VI, are a sculptural homage to Imi Knoebel’s reductivist expression. This collection of work represents a translation of Imi’s early Mennige-Bilder works into 3- dimensional objects that explore form, perspective and materiality in new ways. Through his work, Imi Knoebel creates an awareness of the power of minimalist forms and their ability to alter the perception of space. His experimentation with geometrical patterns and visual associations resonated with my own work on visual consciousness. This parallel narrative manifests through material relationships and juxtapositions explored in solid marble, wool felt and wood in a minimalist palette of black and white. The choice of materials and color intend to elicit and challenge the way we see space and the objects within space.
