Tree Guitar, 2012
The way I see it, humans are unable to objectively see their own selves from an outside perspective. The eyes and brain - which administer sight, are bound and confined by the body, after all. To put it in paradoxical terms, perhaps our sense of sight is open to only the outside world. This is something that I question, as I wonder - what is that we can see with our eyes, and what is it that we cannot see? We are able to recognize that both the interior and exterior worlds can exist simultaneously. We can see the branches and leaves of a tree, and if we dig up the earth we can also see its roots - providing us with a view of the the entire form and shape of the tree. But it would be difficult for us to see the state of the blood vessels coursing through our bodies without the use of medical technology such as CT or MRI scans. These two forms of self-similarity, regardless of their value in a formalization which appear to share a common set of morophogenetic rules, are strange and mysterious.
