Flaw

Well, what's it all about? Think along the lines of 'Imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit'.

 

The slideshow sequence tries to express the misinterpretation by a prehistoric society of an unknown phenomenon (such as an eclipse). The titles relate to the opposite scenario – they track the realisation among a group of intelligent people that their superior understanding has been wrong.

 

So the set is about The Collapse of Perception – on the one hand the failure to correctly interpret the unknown, and on the other to recognise that an interpretation accepted without question is not knowledge.

 

That might sound a bit dry – first and foremost it's a collection of pictures and the titles are quite fun…
