What I See When I Look At is a project started by Graphic Designer Robert John aimed at re-engaging us with the things we see everyday. When we were kids we use to see amazing things…This project asks us to go back to that imagination, and engage with the world around us.
The more personal meaning of the project is about our concepts of reality. Robert’s father lived with Parkinson’s for many years before his father passed away. During which, he developed Parkinson’s dementia, he began seeing things which were not visible to us, yet they were so real to him, he could see these things, smell them, even touch and feel them. This made Robert think about what our concepts of reality are and what we choose to actually see. How real are they?
We are pleased to announce that the project is presenting its second annual show at Store Street Gallery in Central London, close to the British Museum. The gallery represents and promotes both established and emerging contemporary artists from the United Kingdom, Europe and further afield.
The show will feature works from the following artists:
Malaika Ibreck, Henriette Heimdal, Tamsin Corrigan, Connie Liebschner,
Charlie Leverett, Berkin & Mika, Lauren Goldie, Sultan Kinns, Jason Nepomuceno,
MJ Colgate, Jamie Firminger, Alexander Green, Ella Shepard & Margie Houlston
