About perception – about symbolism

Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia:
Perception is the process ofattaining awareness or understanding of the environment by organizing andinterpreting sensory information. All perception involves signals in thenervous system, which in turn result from physical stimulation of the sense organs.

English writer and dramatist DouglasAdams (*1952)
Everything you see or hear orexperience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe byperceiving it, so everything in the universe you perceive is specific to you.

Swiss psychiatristC. G. Jung (*1875):
The essence of C. G. Jung’stheory on perception is that much seemingly random variation in behaviour isactually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in theway individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

Chinese Philosopher Confucius (*551 BC):
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
To know is to know that youknow nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
When we see men of a contrarycharacter, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.

Asbjorn Lonvig has made these worksbecause he wants to establish perception is psychologically and philosophicallyone of the most important issues to humanity.
The art work consists of 2 motifs.
2 motifs which seen separately are seeminglyidentical.
However if you look closer you willrealize that they are not – not at all.
Few elements are identical – the themeis the same but the actual shapes are not.
They symbolize different perceptionsof the same incident or object.
They symbolize that two or more incidentsor objects will be conceived differently by different human beings when their senseorgans, like sight, hearing, sense of smell etc. are stimulated.
Everything an individual sees,hears, smells etc. or experiences in anyway at all is specific to that individual.
Perceptionis the outcome of the individual’s inherence and experiences to make things orderly and consistent.

People must accept the individualityof perception.
Perception is individual and questionable.
Perception is not to know.
Perception is to know nothing.
To know is to know that you knownothing
