Apophenia is the tendency to mistakenly perceive connections and meaning between unrelated things. It was coined in 1958 by the German psychologist, Klaus Conrad, to describe the onset of schizophrenia. In this series I used the word as a guide for sequencing the images. Each image is connected to the subsequent one by a connection I saw. In building the connections one by one, and allowing a free state of though, I again try to deconstruct the idea that a photograph or a photographic sequence holds an intrinsic truth, one that holds true for both maker and the observer. So think of this series like a puzzle and see if you can find the connections as you move through the images, have fun!
