A world of children: a photo-serigraphic presentation
The purpose of this abstract is to provide an explanation of a photo-serigraphic presentation of a world of children as a perceptual reality, within the life experience. Perceptual reality, for this purpose, refers to a direct knowledge of the environment, commencing with the earliest topical spatial relationships the sensory motor development allows, and an enriched world view achieved through assimilation, accommodation, and discrimination. Fundamental to the precept of the presentation, is a perceptual sensitivity on the part of the spectator; to recognize the object representations as a realization of his own personal experiences, and to extend, beyond simply a remembering of what it was like, to a more positive empathy with the feelings of the child, in a given recollected situation. Hopefully, the symbolic content allows the observer's consciousness to incorporate an emotional response, within his own radius of action. Empirically, the edition prints sampled in the presentation juxtapose a broad spectrum of stylistic characteristics found in 20th Century Art. It is not difficult to analyze the observed precision of Impressionism as a moment of time -- in this instance, a given child, represented by the chemical light process of photography, used as a time recording device of a mental image in two dimensions.
