The human eye is able to accurately focus on an area approximately the size of the hand at arms length before it needs to refocus in order to gather more information in greatest possible detail. The brain composites series of images into larger scenes. The fractured panorama is literally how we see the world around us, and although a unified scene is derived from individual pieces observed under the greatest scrutiny, it is merely a representation of what we actually saw – an amalgam. What we think we see only exists in our mind, the completed scene rendered by our brain.
Hidden Lake is a twenty foot by five foot installation comprised of 159 individual images, captured in series, developed for continuity, printed, mounted and finally displayed in a 34 by 5 grid.
