The images on this website are primarily the result of an ongoing experience
between my thoughts, senses and the world around me.
These forces have collectively offered me the tools necessary to explore and understand
the relationship between myself and the society in which I live.
However, for reasons other than the obvious, one sense has been much more influential
Since the age of seven, only one of my eyes have functioned as originally given.
My left eye has thanklessly offered me an acceptable image of the world
and enabled me to function at ‘normal‘ level.
My right eye however, slightly askew and with a modified retina,
paints a slightly different portrait than it’s counterpart.
These two discrepant images are then fused into one,
projected onto my minds eye and generally accepted as ‘what I see.’
But this combination of differentiating images, along with a limited peripheral vision
have massively influenced the way in which I experience my world.
They are factors that not only affect my obvious visual perception
but also my understanding of what is, or might be happening around me.
Whilst sometimes the double image experience can be physically or emotionally uncomfortable,
making simple functions difficult or certain thoughts distracting,
other times can be equally entertaining and rewarding.
Almost on a daily basis, I engage with this stimuli and inwardly explore
the relationships between these two images
and how they impact on my thoughts and actions.
As with this piece of text,
I believe that every other observation, reflection or creation found on this site are,
in some form or another,
informed and shaped by the experience of my fractured vision.
