Isolates of Valid Perception

Look out for this Photography Exhibition by Gerry McCulloch comprising of twenty three Darshana Photo Art images at the NAB Gallery, Goldsmiths, University of London from 8th - 29th November.

Isolates of Valid Perception is a five-year still and moving-image project that explores subjective relationships between consciousness and its appearing objects. This is the first collection of images in the series.

Within the context of the premise, an isolate is loosely posited as a pictorial or sequential element. However, entire picture systems and indeed collections of pictures can function as isolates. Each isolate is imbued with subliminal sensory cues. Mundane isolates mirror transcendent isolates and vice-versa.

Isolates ripen individually and collectively in the mindstream, but only if a trace of the isolate endures; uncontaminated by discursive elaboration in the perceptual continuum.

The temporal sequence of . . .

~          Meeting the isolate in open presence

~           Sustaining the primacy of sensory cognizance

~           Suspending the impulse to conceptualise

~           And embracing corporeal reciprocity

. . . is important, because contact with the isolate dissolves when discernment is attempted through the lens of a pre-configured paradigm.

If you encounter resonance with an isolate in this collection however fleetingly, please send your impression to after 24 minutes have elapsed / Subject heading: #isolateperception. Your impressions are enthusiastically welcomed and will be incorporated into ensuing phases of the project.
