Suki Chan’s ‘Lucida’ to open at Tintype gallery!

From this Friday 16 September, Tintype presents Suki Chan’s intrigiung solo exhibition, Lucida. Combining images, bio-medical research and individual testimonies, the interactive three-screen installation explores the fascinating relationship between the human eye, brain and vision.

Working with a camera obscura, Chan was drawn in by how vision works; our eyes receive images upside down, but then our brain interprets them right way up. She also examines the idea of how we tend to see much less than what we actually perceive, that most of what we perceive is in a sense an illusion.

Being a fully interactive work, Lucida invites viewers to use eye-tracking technology to reveal their own rapid eye movements, of which most people are quite unaware. The installation will reveal how visual information is modified and processed by the eye and the brain in real time.

Prepare to see like you’ve never seen before! In Chan’s own words, ‘The more I investigated perception and how the brain processes information, the more miraculous and incredible it became: how impoverished and compressed information received via our senses can yield a coherent, high resolution, detailed and multi-dimensional world.’

– India Irving
