Over the years I have explored the allegory of Plato’s Cave, Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon (1950), Rachel Seifferts The Darkroom (2001). I’ve found connections in Werner Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty (1927) and connected with numerous books, papers and articles that question and strengthen my understanding of awareness and perception. Daniel Kahnehann’s Thinking Fast and Slow (2011) points out that we only spend three seconds in the moment before we are taken away by our thoughts. Its said that we spend fifteen seconds when looking at a picture on a wall while in reality we spend only three seconds looking and twelve seconds thinking. Such discoveries beg the question are we really looking?

My practice continually aims to expand notions of how we see and think about existence, our world and ourselves. Constantly examining and questioning to build awareness and knowledge to open up new ways of understanding this experience. The work below explores my own approach in strengthening awareness and perception and the subsequent nature of shaping consciousness through the act of making images.
