The Visible Void

Your world is an illusion - a mind trick. The Visible Void explores the complex sense of "reality" we create from simple light entering our eyes. Coming to understand this grand illusion led directly to great discoveries in art, photography and the modern world of virtual reality.

Director Statement

My life and work as a creative has led me to some unusual conclusions about the fundamental role "visualising" plays in our sense of reality. I've spent years expounding these ideas to colleagues and friends who've often encouraged me to write about it. But I guess I was waiting for someone else more qualified to publish first. It just never happened. So, over the years, life gave me enough qualifications to get off my butt and start telling these stories myself.
