The Deception of Perception

On first sight, the image depicts the wall of a residential area. On closer inspection, it becomes apparent that it is a photograph of a collage, distorting the perception of depth. Some elements from the background come to the fore and the shadow transforms into a solid object.
These distortions emphasize my personal preferences for certain elements over others. The work aims to open a dialogue about degrees of subjectivity in the act of looking at, and perceiving, our environment.
