The act of looking is both objective and subjective. As a species, our cognitive biology intuitively processes and categorizes visual information on a physical level, yet we interpret personal meaning drawn from individual filters of perspective and place. Still, our need to compulsively find pattern and organize information – even in our own ways, is a connection that can be exploited and epistemologically portrayed with an image. By decoding micro imagery of human biology and reorganizing the data into basic design – a visual language, I am interested in how we organize our world with constructs that have a shared communal meaning while still remaining bound to and in our individual realities.
