“We see what we believe, and to change what we see, it is sometimes necessary to change what we believe.” – Jeremy Narby
These photographs challenge the self-portraits created by artists during the Renaissance. I am interested in the afterimage of an optical illusion created by the vibration of colours (look at the photo for 20-60 seconds and stare at a white object).
The act of taking the self-portrait in this particular scenario would be systematic. Other people could also produce these photographs as it is not about the photo, but the afterimage it produces – the self-portrait.
If I were to take this response further, I would have to better understand how the eye functions and color blindness. I would also further my research in the act of self-portrait itself.
