“Seeing Slow and Fast”,
Sunday, June 10,
With the aid of cameras with shutters that let light in for varying lengths of time, we can see how the world might look to those who see slowly and those who see fast. In this exhibit, we are shown how the world might look to someone who sees several times slower than most people. It is a beautiful though often blurred world where forms and colors overlap and shimmer. It is the real world, but seen differently.
If slow see-ers (seers?) exist, we might think of them as handicapped in some situations. Anything moving would blur. Anything moving fast would disappear. Forget hitting a baseball or riding a bicycle. Walking might be difficult, running definitely so. Yet, if their heads and the world in front of their eyes were still, they would see as well as we do. In some cases, like those who are color blind, slow see-ers might see better than we do, we who consider ourselves normal.
