Distorted view


The phenomenon of crafting first impressions often precedes genuine acquaintance, shaping narratives based on appearances or style. "The Distorted View" explores this intricate interplay between perception and reality in our initial encounters.

Life's tapestry unfolds with myriad first impressions, woven into every moment and interaction. Scientifically, it's a process that demands nearly six months of direct contact to reconfigure these initial perceptions—a timeframe rarely afforded for reversing an unfavorable impression.

The adage, "The first impression is what remains," echoes resoundingly within this context. "The Distorted View" meticulously captures the nuances of these fleeting moments, illustrating the clouded lens through which we often perceive others—a barrier preceding genuine understanding.

The project ingeniously features an empty frame, rich with dual symbolism:

  • A visual representation of the void created by our initial distorted views.

  • A reflective space, beckoning viewers to place themselves within, prompting introspection about the image they project onto others.

This emptiness serves as a mirror, urging self-reflection—a catalyst for contemplation about the impressions we cast upon the world.

In its essence, "The Distorted View" invites individuals to consider the nature of their initial assessments, challenging them to decode their preconceptions. It's a thought-provoking endeavor, culminating in the poignant query: "So, what is your first impression?"—a catalyst for introspection into the intricacies of our initial encounters.
