Interpretation Diversity

Inspired by the Belgium surrealist painter René Magritte whose work named 'The Explanation'.

By deconstructing and reframing the elements within this painting, I explored the potential nature of how an individual can possibly give an 'Explanation' toward one thing, which reflects the aftermath of the rise of technology and the ubiquitousness of speech freedom.

Seeing, Hearing, Understanding

It seems no problem with what people usually say: ‘Seeing is believing’. In the sense of visual witness, it brings about the pure persuasiveness of evidence regardless of the context of whatever it is. However, nowadays, the intersection of mix information and the autonomy of interpretation constantly come up simultaneously so that things could have been no longer as it was anymore.
As John Hope says,  “One feels the excitement of hearing an untold story”. A new tale is always a stimulus for thrilling one's emotion or at least triggering the curiosity. In terms of gaining an insight into one thing, hearing what people say is easier than any other way. Nevertheless, this usually incorrectly relays erroneous information as the emotional influences could lead to an ambiguous situation which lacks evidence.

The sense of understanding is quite an objective perception that can be extreme. With the inevitability of this gap, the interpretation by each person is varied; therefore, it may affect people’s behaviour, which brings uncertainty and variety to the world. Following that, how do people perceive one thing in terms of true? Is fact or truth really important? What if we just do not realise what exact kind of world we live in?
