A Study on Visual Narrative

Working with photography, I use still images as metaphors to convey a message to the viewer. Within this practice, I have become increasingly interested to stimulate the viewer’s imagination and reasoning,  in an effort to investigate what transpires behind the camera, the retina and in the human brain – where consciousness arises, information acquires meaning, and narrative takes shape.

Looking, seeing, and assigning meaning to the visual stimuli of the environment has never been a straightforward endeavor. Vision and visual perception,  attempting a grip on elusive reality.

Realities of Information is a study focusing on the dynamic narrative relationship between images. The work lies idle in a state of contextual limbo and ambiguity between reality, memory, and imagination, yet always holding the potential to stimulate curiosity, intuition; and creative reasoning in a way that fuses pieces of information into an emerging story.

Leading to the second phase of RoI, which involves audience engagement through a survey platform, and is realized with the scientific guidance and contribution of Dr. Anastasia Louka.
