Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon of perceiving something as somethhing else- seeing and/or hearing especific and significant shapes and/or sound where there are none. This stimulus is what makes us see familiar shapes when we look to the clouds. A famous example of pareidolia is the Face on Mars.
David Hochbaum’s exhibition, though takes another perspective on this wonderful event- his show is a amalgamation of his work-sculptures and paintings-becoming an overall installation experience. He follows the question “what would a place in the sky look like?” Making the viewer walk into a world and not merely walking into a gallery with paintings on the wall. The gallery space is turning into a small village in the clouds.
