When our eyes encounter the world, we collect visual evidence that our brain ultimately resolves—by way of recognition and re-creation—into an image. Through a process heavily dependent on statistical inference, we collate this data into identifiable forms, and we call these collected forms our universe. “Dynamic Mirror,” an exhibition by Venezuelan-born artist Pedro Blas, interrupts this process of endless cognitive matchmaking by introducing forms that do not immediately reflect known quantities. His digital images displace rational environments and make our eyes “think,” creating optical landscapes where identifiable signatures of architecture and nature are repeated until they collapse into a space of uncertainty. In this new realm, these signatures no longer perform the task of representation, and instead create an optical bridge between known and unknown. by Amy Walleston
