How you see the world and how I see the world will always be different. Each person’s visual perception is colored by the shape of our anatomy, the rods and cones in our eyes, and by the sum of our experiences. What we see is a negotiation generated between the visual stimulus coming in through our eyes and the conclusions our brains make about what we think we are going to see. I am interested in this disparity and the threshold of how much information is needed for the viewer to think they might understand an object. What is the space between curiosity and comprehension and what boundaries will the viewer cross to satisfy that curiosity. The works in this thesis are active objects which challenge the viewer to look closer, examine how they look and contemplate the veracity of what they see. These objects are unresolved without the viewer’s curious gaze but when the viewer looks what they see is not a clear answer.The objects in this collection require the viewer to be active. They present partial images and narratives which the viewer must piece together by drawing on their own life experience. Phrases and keywords evoke interpersonal experiences to which the viewer can relate because we've all felt love, longing, frustration, disappointment...but the viewer is likely never rewarded with the details of the story spelled out on the body of the wearer. They are left indefinitely in the space of wonder with only their own story to draw upon for resolution.
