metal hearts
Devorah Sperber

After        The Mona Lisa 8  is constructed from 1482 larger spools of thread so the image resolution        is very low. Yet when seen through a viewing sphere, the thread spools condense        into a recognizable image, conveying how little information the brain needs        to make sense of visual imagery it has already been exposed to.
At          first glance, the thread spool installation appears to be a random arrangement          of spools of thread. A clear acrylic sphere placed in front of the work,          shrinks and condenses the thread spool “pixels” into a recognizable image          while also rotating the imagery 180 degrees like the human eye. This shift          in perception functions as a dramatic mechanism to present the idea that          there is no one truth or reality, emphasizing subjective reality vs. an          absolute truth.
