Saccades: An Archaelogy of Love
Our eyes are only capable of focusing on a very small portion of a given scene at any moment. Perceived emotional resonance and our desire to resolve ambiguities both play an important role in what we choose to attend to. The title of this piece, Saccades, refers to the tiny, continuous and sub-conscious eye movements we make as we attend and attempt to make sense out of various bits and pieces of our visible world. I attempt to give material form to these perceptual and cognitive processes that lie under the radar of ordinary conscious experience. By externalizing the construction of coherence, I allow the viewer to make the connections and fill in the gaps between image fragments.
