D/VISION [a dose of color-blindness] Autoral Photography Project by Heitor Kimura This project shows a bit of how I see the colors. I am color blind and I intended to talk about this "defect" in this work because I never meant it to become a taboo, or something that I should be ashamed and hide. The images make reference to Rorschach test, an association made ​​with the fact that people usually point images, objects, clothes, to me and ask the color of these things. Thus they try to imagine and understand how I see the world. The curiosity of others to understand my daltonism, is similar to the test, which seeks to understand how the patient thinks. I used my hand to represent identity, body, and the distortion caused by the scanner causes a nuisance, a feeling of something defective and deficient, just like my perception of colors. The most important characteristic is the color of the images, although they are two different colors side by side, for me are one color, I can not differentiate them. So these images are completely symmetric only from my point of view, and it becomes a way of showing how I see the world. Read Less

D/VISION [a dose of color-blindness]
Autoral Photography Project by Heitor Kimura 


Este projeto demonstra um pouco de como eu vejo as cores, sou portador de daltonismo e quis falar deste "defeito" neste trabalho pois eu nunca quis que isso se tornasse um tabú, ou algo que eu devesse ter vergonha e esconder. Então ele carrega minha necessidade de mostrar como eu vejo o mundo para as outras pessoas, uma dose de daltonismo.

As imagens fazem alusão ao teste de Rorschach, uma associação feita com o fato de que as pessoas costumam apontar imagens, objetos, roupas, para mim e perguntar a cor daquilo.Com isso elas tentam imaginar e entender como eu vejo o mundo. A curiosidade alheia em entender como é meu "olhar", é semelhante ao teste, que busca entender o "pensar" do paciente.

Usei minha mão para como representante simbólico do corpo e identidade, daquilo que faz parte de que sou. A distorção causada pelo scanner causa um incômodo, uma sensação de algo defeituoso e deficiente, bem como a minha percepção das cores.

A característica mais importante das imagens é a cor, apesar de serem duas cores diferentes lado a lado, para mim — um daltônico — são a mesma cor, não sei diferenciá-las. Logo, estas imagens são completamente simétricas apenas do meu ponto de vista, e ele se torna uma forma de demonstrar meu modo de enxergar o mundo.
