Absence + Presence

How is it possible that civilization has a global understanding of the abstraction of the human form? At a subconscious level as humans we have the ability to find the form of the body in the most minimal of shapes, objects and even natural phenomena.

In this series I have focused on the change between realistic representations of the human form to abstraction. I have broken it down to its basic elements to explore at what point our visual language allows us to recognize and define a shape or object as being influenced by or connected to, the human form.
