The Seen by Mary Bernadette Lee
The Seen by Mary Bernadette Lee is an interpretation of John Berger's most influential book – Ways of Seeing.
Nakedness is a lived experience for oneself whereas Nudity, is perceived-nakedness by another. Nudity transforms nakedness into objects (of desire). The interesting question here is, how do men and women see each other?
With that, how do we see what-is-seen? Here, I also explore the relationship between two man-made entities - Word and Image; Is the relationship between both a power struggle or complementary? Looking is an act of choice, and way of seeing is influenced by what you already know and your beliefs. Thus begs the question - How is your manner of perception like?
