This image was made by scanning in a self
portrait sculpture (21x16x11 cm.), duplicating and flipping the image and
merging the two to form the reverse of the classic vase figure/ground illusion.
I made the original sculpture in1996 of high fire stoneware with a ball
copper blue matt glaze.[Ceramics] This image is the reverse of the
classic figure/ground perceptual illustration in which a vase models two
faces through its background. [Psychology] Of course its presentation
here is electronic using the Internet. [Cyber]
||The exhibit on the left was part of Koop's
Clay-Mates which showed at the Hoyt Institute of fine arts in March of
1999. The 20 pots I chose to show all connect to psychology.
The Internet exhibit has a close-up of each pot with an explanation of
the psychological meaning and a link to a relevant internet site.
You may visit the exhibit by clicking the picture. We also put the
rest of the show on the internet. The visit it please click on the
show announcement to the right.
