Among the things I've taken notice of are the relationships between the parts and the whole, negative and positive aspects, the accumulation of time and memory, the tactility of vision, and physical transposition. Art is a process of contemplating and recognizing things and a way of perceiving the world.
Of all of these experiences, "physical transposition" plays the most important role in my personal perception. For example, in viewing a Michelangelo sculpture of a slave, the figure's pose, the visibility of his bones on the surface, and his flexed muscles convey physical pain and a sense of restriction that we would probably also feel when assuming the same position. But the expression transcends physical anguish and also conveys spiritual pain and the artist’s emotional state. If we substitute our body for the body and spirit of the slave, we can also substitute traces of the artist's chisel for his strength and emotion.
The human body, which has the capacity to make contact with anything through the experience of visual and tactile sensation, absorbs details while also being aware of the whole, and recognizes the existence of things in relation to the surrounding space. Constantly sensing things that remain out of sight by shifting one's gaze, we are repeatedly performing the act of filling in the gap between visible and invisible.
More than simply looking at something, this act makes us use the memory, and the sense of touch as one attempts to perceive a space with their entire body.
