Parallax is part of an ongoing project, a perpetual examination of the modus operandi of our perception and interpretation and an intellectual and visual exploration of the disturbing and the uncanny. The images of the series are conceived to bother our consciousness and question our ability of meaning-making.
“I believe it when I see it” we say. A dictum that in fact presupposes a total confidence in our perception, in our senses and our cognition. While in everyday life we would rarely question ourselves about our perception, photography with its contemplative moments gives us the opportunity to explore a spectrum of possible perspectives, senses and significations.
The clichés of the series were conceived to subvert the ordinary system of points of reference that defines how we see and comprehend things – space, light, forms and figures in the picture. They suggest us that “something’s not okay”. But instead of imposing an ultimate meaning, they invite us on an unconstrained, deliberating discovery.
