Six Eye-Centered Portraits, 2006
by Devorah Sperber
Medium: Thousands of spools of thread, clear viewing spheres
Dimensions: 104"- 122" h x 100"w (each work)


我興趣在藝術,科學和技術之間作連結,眼睛和大腦優先次序,主觀的經驗及絕對的真理間找出真實。作為一個視覺藝術家,我不能想像一個話題比所看到的更刺激卻是如此根本,人的大腦如何讓我們的視覺世界有意義的。

I am interested in the link between art, science, and technology, how the eyes and brain prioritize, and reality as a subjective experience vs. an absolute truth. As a visual artist, I cannot think of a topic more stimulating and yet so basic, than the act of seeing--how the human brain makes sense of the visual world. -- Devorah Sperber


After Renoir, 2006

Based on A Girl With a Watering Can, (1876) by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
National Gallery of Art, Washington DC

At first glance, the installations appear to be a random arrangement of spools of thread. Clear acrylic spheres placed in front of the works, shrink and condense the thread spool "pixels" into recognizable images while also rotating the imagery 180 degrees like the human eye. This shift in perception functions as a dramatic mechanism to present the idea that there is no one truth or reality, emphasizing subjective reality vs. an absolute truth.

After Renoir is one of six thread spool works which are based on the centered-eye phenomenon in historical portraits. The other five works are based on portraits by da Vinci, Vermeer, Picasso, Rembrandt, & Van Eyck. This concept was inspired by a recent scientific survey by Christopher Tyler of 3/4 view portraits over the past two millennia which revealed that one eye tended to be placed symmetrically at or near the vertical axis of the canvas throughout the history or Western portraiture. While Renoir's A Girl With a Watering Can did not meet the criteria of Tyler's study (he only surveyed portaits from the waist up), the symmetry, soft focus, and color scheme compelled me to select it as a subject matter.

    GOOD!!
