We need an alternative definition of reality. One that allows us to reconsider the beliefs that we bring to what we see.

Anamorphosis provides a meditation on existence.
One that lends significance
to places, objects, and things, elevating them through a process of familiarity. The details that I notice become representations of my reality. They represent both what they are and something else, at
the same time. Such symbols, in my opinion, allow for a different way of seeing the self, not as a mirror but as
an access point. They act
as elements that allow the viewer to explore and possibly complicate the narratives that are firmly affixed in normative presumptions.

Within my process — this special manner of viewing, human subjectivities and more individualized identifications are seen as something that can become knowable. Anamorphosis is a metaphor for reimagining and expanding on appearances and overcoming “Otherness”— more in the sense that
when someone is seen as less than, or as an object, this perspective can then be appropriated and re-loaded with more poignant meanings that point towards agency
and autonomy.
