Weaving together extraordinary images, bio-medical research and individual testimonies, Lucida exposes the curious and complex relationship between the human eye, the brain and vision.


Working with a camera obscura, artist Suki Chan became intrigued by how our eyes receive images upside down, yet the brain processes and interprets them the correct way up. The mechanisms of our visual perception mean that at any given moment we actually see much less than we perceive. Our everyday experience of viewing a perfect and stable image of the world with ‘photographic’ detail is, in a certain sense, an illusion.  

Viewers will be invited to use eye-tracking technology to reveal their own rapid eye movements - something we are normally unaware of. The multi-screen installation will reveal how visual information is modified and processed by the eye and the brain in real time.
