One aspect of Introjection and Projection is the belief that our social interactions and experiences leave psychic traces and residues in our internal life/unconscious.
These psychic traces colour and constantly reconstruct the psychic screen that we view the world around us through and thus affect our subsequent interpretations and experiences of that world (1).
One aspect of 'the spectacle' conceptualised by Situationist Guy Debord (2) is that the subject is immersed in a seamless representation of the world from a capitalist perspective via state, corporations and media.
This, plus the highly pervasive dissemination of the dominant ideology, results in a world view and subsequent experience of the world that is shaped by a top-down discourse which renders all alternatives to capitalism increasing dificult to imagine unless the individual deliberately seeks out alternative narratives and cultural/political resources.
This process is ongoing- our internal life modified by our experience of the social; our experience of the external coloured by the residue of our social experiences (1).
This piece attempts to give expression to the above, when it is exhibited there will be an accompanying paint set so that the public can add to the colours building up on the visor thus giving physical expression to the effects of their social interactions.
