Razzle Dazzle, 2018.
Our societies are saturated with imagery. This imagery often is our form of visually engaging individuals, as well as a method of communication. This immersion in visual stimulation is seemingly constant and is inarguably shaping and reshaping our understanding of our world. When these images are generated in unfamiliar ways and apparatuses of seeing, new realities begin to emerge. This begins to allow the promotion of a progressively homogenized understanding of our environments. There is a multiplicity of strategies for seeing, both in reality as well as artificially constructed.
This study analyzes disguising depth and quantity through the study of WW1 warship camouflage called Razzle Dazzle. Depending on the vantage point, it can be read as flat, frontal, homogeneous, and non-hierarchical. The legibility can also display a distorted pattern projection with geometry now as separate parts.
