Wen-Han Chang's Photography


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

— Hebrews 11:1 King James Bible:

From the view of quantum physics, the universe contains infinite dimensions, for example, the infinite-dimensional vector space of all possible wavefunctions. However, human beings are limited to sense the world in three dimensions. Based on the desire to visualize the unknown, the camera and lens were invented to extend bodily sensation, to see farther and wider. Nevertheless, with the aid of this equipment, we are still confined to the three-dimensional cube, ignorant to the world of infinite dimensions. Thus, there must still be something we are unable to sense and recognize. In this work, I want to show the limitations of sensation, perception, and recognition because we are three-dimensional beings. Additionally, I would like to unfold a philosophical inquiry: is it true that to see is to believe? To address our perceptual limitations, I blur the vision and focus between the object and me, on nothingness, in order to reveal that the matter we can’t see still exists. Furthermore, is the investigation of “vision and truth” more related to “belief”? If so, indicate that the curiosity of vision is a quest to find god?

One thought on “Invisibility

  1. Saved and reborn Christians can perceive the unseen through their spirits without the aid of a camera. However, if a photographer can capture images using their spirit, the pictures may reveal more of the unseen, even to Christians.
