Ken Schles –Oculus


Oculus is the most recent book by Ken Schles, he interrogates the relationship between pictures, memory, and light. In his introduction, Ken Schles writes:

“We infuse the world we encounter with meaning, with social and symbolic significance based on the value we place upon representations we share. This, perhaps, is the irony of our conceptualizations: We make and share images so that we may know the world. But what exactly is the nature of our image representations? And what are the implications of using the metaphor of the image to signify, codify and describe a dynamic and ephemeral world? Oculus is a journey that points beyond the shadow-play of images. It is meditation on the nature of perception and existence in the gray light of this world.”
