Summary

'Lucida' exposes the curious and complex relationship between the human eye, the brain and vision.

Event details

Weaving together extraordinary images, bio-medical research and individual testimonies, Lucida exposes the curious and complex relationship between the human eye, the brain and vision.

Working with a camera obscura, artist Suki Chan became intrigued by how our eyes receive images upside down, yet the brain processes and interprets them the correct way up. The mechanisms of our visual perception mean that at any given moment we actually see much less than we perceive. Our everyday experience of viewing a perfect and stable image of the world with ‘photographic’ detail is, in a certain sense, an illusion.

Lucida was commissioned by the University of Salford Art Collection and the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in partnership with the Centre for the Study of the Senses, A version of Lucida will enter the University of Saflord's Art Collection.
