Amblyopia (a disorder of the visual system that is characterized by a vision deficiency in an eye that is otherwise physically normal, or out of proportion to associated structural abnormalities of the eye) is often linked to Strabismus – a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other.
I wanted to explore the representation of this through images, so experimented using landscape images from my everyday life but ‘split’ – representing the misalignment of sight affected by the Stabismus defect.
After researching the artists Jem Southam [above] and Cath. An. [below] I chose to manipulate my images to create a ‘film camera’ effect, as not only did I think this linked well with both their works, but was more visually stimulating and adapted what I saw in the original image into something different – much like how Strabismus adapts the sight of those who have it.
