Influencing perception

An installation by: Arthur Hortolomei

implicit ---> explicit
Perception is easy to influence

This project deals with the fact that people perceive themselves as individuals in control of their own will but in fact they can be influenced in their decisions without them being aware.

Through a performing act of showing still slides, I induce a state in which the spectators become accustomed to a certain thought and thus sense that I may try to send them a message. I will then proceed in an action that will evoke the opposite reaction of what people were expecting to experience.
