System I

  • 20 minutes

  • An enjoyable experience

  • A little bit painful towards the end.

System II

  • 46 minutes

  • Not enjoyable whatsoever, I was eager to get to the end

  • It started to be painful not even halfway through the sheet

  • Some imperfections remain as I find it hard to be perfect

‘What are you hiding?’

Our senses and emotions help us understand cultural fragments that flow through our brains.  Visualisation revolves around processing and patterns; meaning emerges from the relationship between the outside world and our own physical senses and emotions.  It is the exploration and interpretation of our consciousness that influences how we view the world. Experience teaches us to recognise faces with very little detail – the detail is embedded deep in our psyche. Even when a photo is strongly pixelated your brain can still decipher an image.

‘Intention’

But Mousie, thou art no thy lane,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best-laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
Gang aft agley,
An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
For promis’d joy!

From ‘To a Mouse’ by Robert Burns

On Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough’, November 1785

Joana Passos ‘Framework’ 2022. Graph paper and ceramic. 28cm x 25cm.

‘Framework’

Through the ceramic frame the paper is trapped, in a way that creates volumes and waves. Despite being cornered, the paper is freed by its shape.
