Prize Winner 2004

(Rebuilt 2019)

This work was part of an ongoing investigation for Michael looking into the ideas of Perception. In particular, the question of ‘Who’ is God? And in relation to this, the question of ‘Who’ are we?

The eye as an optical mechanism plays a fundamental role in our ability to conceive and process the perception of God. The work reveals the dichotomy between the metaphysical concept and the natural physicality of the form. This work is about what is beyond us. It holds to the ideal that in an attempt to pause the consciousness and grasp some understanding, something waits to be revealed. However momentary or timeless this may be is up to the perceiver.
