2013. HD video animation, 6 mins 18 secs
Often accompanied with dizziness, Focal Slowing confronts the viewer with the verge of perceptual experiences occurring while the image is formed in our mind. The animation features only black and white stripes, slowly changing in spatial frequency. However, black and white stripes cannot be seen as such due to the limits of our perceptual apparatus. Rather, we see fluid imagery superimposed over the stripes, in front of the screen.
