"The hardest thing of all to see is what is really there."

How we perceive the world has little in common with the world around us. Regarding visual processing, the brain can effectively process only about 1 percent of the information. Your brain constructs all the images you see right now and relies on a prediction machine and personal experience. Mental images are the process of recreating and making dreams and the reality we live in.

For this project, I designed a couple of 3d printed pinhole cameras. These cameras simulate low bandwidth and the limited information we receive from our visual sensors. Uncertainty and imperfection of raw materials and techniques will never allow creating a clear image of the fact. The image on the film represents the process of image construction from the tiny bits of information. It allows the spectator to fill in unblurry images or shapes with their context and memories.
