Herman Kolgen: RETINA

Using the human camera of our iris, traces of light are transmitted to our brain, where they are potentially encoded in our memory. We are dependent upon light to interpret fragments of our world at every moment — how many images has our visual perception registered, processed and compiled throughout our lives? What remains of these diffracted moments and ephemeral flashes that result from the constant bombing of photons and optical frequencies?

Are they blurred memories or clear ones? Do they create a retinal amnesia or a permanent imprint? Through this biological filter of sight, I am exploring the coexistence of the human and its intermediate territories — a double relationship that interrogates what is real, intimate, and exterior — in all of its fragility, permeability, and indeterminacy.
