How do we comprehend what we see, and how do we communicate our own empirical knowledge? Anonymous Presence gathers thirteen sources of contemporary aesthetics that explore and reflect on the experiential understanding of perception. There is an intention to make noticeable the unacknowledged, the presumed, the daily ignored, the unintentionally concealed. There is an evident immersion of the self in specific times and places. These artists observe and ponder upon the components that inhabit explicit arenas. By analyzing their own perceptions, they inspect their self awareness based on distinctive cultural or personal levels, reinterpreting and restructuring those essentials that compose their mental constructions.
