By Brianna Lynn Hernández Baurichter
Understanding the world around us requires a shifting perspective shaped by our experiences and the places from which we view life. This perspective helps us to build connections, agree on shared meaning, and navigate familiar situations. Reconstructing Reality presents intentionally altered perspectives, exploring the possibilities within each moment to mean something new, express what is misunderstood, or realize hidden truths. Imagined and recollected imagery are combined to create familiar yet entirely unique psychological landscapes. Fragmented memories and interpretations of present circumstances are stitched together, resulting in dream-like visions. These hybrids of reality and imagination each maintain their own truth to be discovered with a simple shift from one perspective to another.
