What I See When I Look At
26 June – 1 July 2017
What I See When I Look At is a project started by graphic designer Robert John aimed at re-engaging viewers with the things seen everyday. This project asks us to go back to the imagination of our child-selves and engage with the world around us. The more personal meaning of the project is about our concepts of reality. Robert’s father lived with Parkinson’s for many years before his father passed away. During which, he developed Parkinson’s dementia, he began seeing things which were not visible to us, yet they were so real to him, he could see these things, smell them, even touch and feel them. This made Robert think about what our concepts of reality are and what we choose to actually see. How real are they?
