Is the eye intimately connected to the “I”? Ideated as a sphere, such a slippery object may exist simultaneously within and without us. Although the nature of this blurry separation is normally beyond our intuitive grasp, Heidi May and Sean Alward’s current work tasks itself with just such a relation between subject and object. Sharing interests in pictorial consumption and the phenomenology of perception, their work questions how images contribute to a sense of self, reality, and order.
