Since visiting the BRAINS: The Mind as Matter exhibition at The Museum of Science and Industry, I have used this experience as a nurturing source of influence towards my practice within Contemporary Art.I captured this photo at the beginning of my project. I was fascinated how the visual sensory perception can be manipulated and ‘fooled’ by the alteration of certain objects. If an object is altered for scientific enquiry and another for aesthetic pleasures, how can we differentiate between the two? After witnessing the exhibition, I decided to act upon the discourse of objects; exploring how different materials alter when experiencing a process, they may become 'something they're not'.
It is interesting just how much we rely on the visual sense to perceive and understand the world around us.
