These box-framed images consist of perspex layers each displaying a segmented part of the composition. I intentionally swapped foreground and background to confound our visual decision making.

The work opens a dialogue about the act of looking. What do we prioritize when we look at a composition? Do we distill certain elements, prioritizing them over the whole composition? Or is the composition the sum of all its parts, creating one indispensable unit?
