It’s a series of complicated photographs, based on my inner emotional experience, that appeared after reading Kant’s ‘Critique of Pure Reason’. The name of the series contains the idea, that is stated in the notion “the thing-in-itself “ (the thing as it exists (the thing per se), without influencing of our perception) is a philosophic term, that denotes comprehensible objects and phenomena. I carried out experiments with an image of human body, which we take subjectively, by prolonged exposure. Having left this way of perception, I imagined (took) a person as something that connects subject and object. By letting this image through my mind I want to show how perception of human body conforms to opportunities of my (our) knowledge (cognition), creating images over and above direct sense and logics.
