About This Project

Experiences happen in a blink of an eye, yet the feeling of what happened persists; acting as an undercurrent, feeding this perceived reality. The two are more than connected; they are dependent – one cannot exist without the other. The perception and reality are dependent. The reality, on the left, shows the floating figure draped in a cloth. On the right, an image four times the length of its pair implies the perceived recognition of the other. The imbalance of the diptych, the right is longer than the left, suggests the persistence of viewpoint and importance.
