aRoC – ABSTRACT REFLECTIONS OF CREATURES
Based on travel, architecture & industrial photography, I create abstract figures in this digital painting series, which each viewer should recognize and interpret individually.
I deliberately play with the phenomenon of pareidolia. This refers to recognizing supposed faces and familiar beings or objects in things and patterns.
Our brain system processes visual stimuli with their characteristics and puts together a coherent image from the light stimuli. However, the process of perception does not only involve the reception and processing of stimuli. Rather, visual perception is also about recognition. Our brain determines what we see, how we see something and is influenced by implicit assumptions as well as individual experiences.
