In the age of the Anthropocene we cannot see the objects surrounding us in their entirety, we can only catch a glimpse of them from the corner of our eyes. How can we comprehend the existence of a granite rock, of global warming or the inconceivable size of the biosphere? We are surrounded by layers of reality, that we can not see directly. The anthropocentric way of thinking -the lack of connection and identification with our surroundings- leaves us in a state which seemingly lacks perspective.
Infrared pictures show a reality of the vista which is unperceivable to us, as the wavelength of infrared radiation is invisible to the human eye, we can only feel its’ effect. Due to the refraction produced by a filter, the photosyntetizing flora appears brighter under the sunlight. This view which is concealed to the naked eye, could help us reposition ourselves. From this perspective, our surroundings and the layers of reality constructing it, might not frighten us anymore, but challenge us. The question is whether we can escape the constraints of our own perception and thus enter into realities outside of human perception?
