Abstract
Our way of seeing and interpreting the visual world are a highly personal and diverse experience. These are the cornerstones of image making, the results of which can offer thought-provoking glimpses into another person’s view of the world, and can make us question our own. This reflective article grapples with the process of creating drawn interpretations of visual perception, specifically that of facial pareidolia, and attempts to share this ‘felt’ process. However, although an interest in pareidolia initiated the study, other concerns emerge: the process of looking and how drawing can navigate issues of time, space and movement.
