I’ve been experimenting with methods of viewing work that fully subvert our visual perception. This dome has been crafted to be the shape of the average visual cone. By surrounding the viewer’s peripheral and central vision, this method becomes a tool for telling almost impossible stories. For the piece, In Cipher, I use this method of viewing to explore the too-big-to-picture idea of the nothingness that existed before there was a universe. By placing the viewer directly into it, perhaps it becomes fathomable that there once was no existence.
