Principles of Invisibility
Can subjective experience provide objective truth? This question is at the heart of Principles of Invisibility. Through the lens of paranormal sightings and occult knowledge, Kauffman’s watercolors test personal forms of cosmic knowledge to bring into question the “truth” of visual data and recorded experiences. These inconsistent visual forms suggest that the lens through which we view paranormal phenomena may contribute to the lack of clarity and confusion within the subject. In the last 60 years, these strange sights have greatly increased in number, leaving behind many well-documented UFO reports. While many have said, “I know what I saw,” the ability to convey that truth objectively still remains elusive.
