Our sensory organs, brain and nervous system mainly function as filters: they select and reduce the excessive oversupply of stimuli. It is their function to protect us from being overwhelmed by this amount of mostly useless and irrelevant knowledge.

Therefore, of the information picked up each moment, only a small, carefully selected amount that is of practical use remains. The so reduced information continues to be recognized and reinforced by symbolic systems and philosophies.

What we generally conceive of as “this world”, is only a fraction of our surrounding reality. These filtering mechanisms can be loosened through meditation, hypnosis or chemical means, allowing additional aspects of reality to be perceived.

DOORS OF PERCEPTION simulates a bypass of the visual filter with purely photographical means: the images are multi-exposures (up to 9-fold) that have exclusively been composed inside the camera – without further digital manipulation.

They indicate in which complexity unreduced visual information probably really reaches our eyes.

As former students of Professor Dr. Gottfried Jäger (DGPH Culture Award 2014) Nabiha & Thom created these new “light-images” in the spirit of concrete photography, exhausting experimental design options of modern camera technology.
