Remnant

2015

The act of looking is never objective. Photographic images are loaded with associative imagery. Objects pulled from reality and captured on film, are already contextualised – they are visually defined, and carry the personal, cultural and historical meanings along with them. In homage to Hermann Rorschach, this work plays on the historical theory of his work and its form. The core of which addresses the active and dominant role of the viewer as the provider of meaning in the face of ambiguity. Reflections, perceptions and experience are projected as the viewer searches for meaning. The viewer is held in limbo, between the form and unpacking their subjective perceptions.

Devoid of inherent meaning what is left is the remnant of the viewer.
