Event Details

Join us on the evening of Thursday 10 November for an artist's talk delivered by Suki Chan. 

A year ago Suki Chan used a camera obscura in a film she made and became intrigued by how our eyes receive images upside-down and yet the brain interprets them the right way up.

"For me, looking at the upside down image in the darkened space, it is as though we have been transported to the inside of our eyes and are witnessing, at that same instant, our retinal image".

Weaving together extraordinary images, bio-medical research, and individual testimonies, Suki Chan’s new interactive moving image work Lucida, exposes the curious, complex relationship between the human eye, vision and the brain.

Lucida unpicks the relationship between vision and perception – revealing it to be an interplay between our own internal physiological, neurological reality and the external physical world. As psychologist Kevin O’Regan comments:

Photos made using the human cornea and lens would be totally out of focus everywhere except in the middle of the picture.

Tickets are free for Aspex Artist Associates and Futurators (including alumni). Booking is essential.

Attendees will also have the oppurtunity to view Aspex's annual 'Platform' exhibtion, celebrating the artwork from recent graduates from across the South.
