This month's Filmmakers' Choice: "The visual field"

After light enters the eye, quite complex processes follow to result in a meaningful impression. In a program entitled "The Visual Field", Karola Schlegelmilch will present films that investigate the act of seeing as the intersection between the mental and external world, as an individual, active interaction on Febraury 8. This happens, for example, through interventions in the frame, which manipulate the visual impressions by transferring an inner attitude through guiding the camera over the motif. Seeing is also reflected as a border with the other. The program was inspired by perception-based psychological research.
