In Rorschach III, Wigley references the Rorschach test, a widely known psychological tool developed early last century, where a subject’s interpretation of mirrored inkblots may be analysed to develop insights into a subject’s character and emotional functioning. By inviting the viewer to perceive the world through her Rorschach windows, the artist subtly subverts the ‘test’ to offer perceptual insights into the self in connection with the living world all around.
