I See, I Know. 2020
This sculptural installation consists of a large scale sculpture reminiscent of a telescope placed against a wall of mirrors. It reflects on our perception, the notion of seeing and also the meaning of knowledge. This is typical for the English language, using the verb to see in the same way as to know. With this work, I intended to raise the question of what we know about what we see. The necessity of finding out if there is more to what simply meets our eyes as well as why we see what we see and what we know about the process of perception. This idea was triggered by a story of Dr Oliver Sack’s patient Dr P. who suffered from visual agnosia described in The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (Sacks, O. 1985, London p. 59).
