Seeing is Believing

Do we always believe what we see?
Do we allow ourselves to see only what we want to see?
And is our own self-perception a finely crafted deceit?
The work uses illusion as a metaphor for the mystery of death, and draws upon devices invented to create
optical illusion in the early days of moving pictures, such as the Zoetrope and Praxinoscope. The work aims to question whether we are only prepared to believe what we can see. As many of us seek a spiritual solution as an escape from increasingly pressurised life in a society that has taught us to expect instant results, confirmation and tangible solutions, there is conversely a decline in church attendance.

Are we only prepared to believe in something tangible? Or are we prepared to invest a belief in the intangible concept of the God and an eternal life that ultimately requires an absolute faith?
