“The Unobserved World,” an Exhibit Presented at Webster University’s Cecille R. Hunt Gallery
“The Unobserved World” is an exhibition in which the gallery functions as a laboratory for an experiment that will ultimately bring together elements of documentation, performance, and video while pushing curatorial boundaries. “The Unobserved World” poses the age-old question to its potential audience: If a tree falls in a forest, and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? This philosophical riddle raises questions regarding observation and knowledge of reality. The skeptic might conclude that: “one can’t be certain of anything until it is perceived or that the tree doesn’t exist at all unless someone is looking at it.” This particular stance has inspired this project’s concept and symbolizes the ineffectiveness of perceived unheard opinions or thoughts, or in this case, an unseen art exhibition.
