Through a constantly graduating transition from an averaged colour palette to a detailed photographic image this work presents a tableau of cognitive scale that raises certain questions:
At what point do we recognise an unfamiliar image as it undergoes a stepped metamorphosis from a basic visual starting point? Similarly, at what point do we recognise a known image whilst it is undergoing the reverse process? My proposition is that our sensory powers of image recognition are such that they increase through frequency of exposure. If this is the case, once the image is revealed and is therefore known, does the viewer ever return to that original state of non-recognition and not see that image to any degree?
