• Investigators


    As visually literate detectives, we detect, decode, and synthesize the information from the visual image as if within lies the solution to the puzzle. We ask ourselves what we are looking at, how the artist created the image, why the photographer made certain choices, what the photograph is saying. Our eye moves around the image. As we look at the picture, feelings rise, and we think of associations between the image and our experiences. We assemble clue after clue, looking thoughtfully and sensitively at the image, until finally we see.There is delight in seeing: in revealing a mystery, considering a new perspective, discovering what was hidden. Ways of seeing are different for each individual. Seeing means coming to an understanding, and each of us does that differently.
