Through this project, I was able to discover the scientific explanation for the common afterimages that I experienced since childhood. In addition, I stumbled across various forums for undiagnosed vision disorders and was able to read the accounts of several sufferers of such diseases, further aiding their cause of bringing awareness to the commonality of such symptoms. I also explored the various uses of afterimages in contemporary art and political activism in ways that I had never even imagined. Overall, I was in awe by the complex way our brains process our surroundings and the creative methods which we utilize some of the discrepancies between our reality and our interpretation of our reality.
If I were to create my own media art using my new knowledge of afterimages, I would create images such as those of Artists Anonymous, shown below:
