Visual Perception 1/ Top-Down Visual Processing
As a visual communications major I like to discover new insights. Surreal images are interesting in top-down visual processing because of their complexity. While our brains are looking to accomplish a goal, it is also taken off guard by the uniqueness of the piece. With the graphic being monochromatic, our eyes naturally become fixated on the light, and biased to its surroundings. Following the light our eyes travel with the ship to look ahead. Then as our scan path moves away from the light they follow the shapes and figures and loop back to the light.
