Freshers is the first project of Sigune Hamann’s residency working with perception and attention in Experimental Psychology, Oxford University in collaboration with neuroscientist Prof Kia Nobre and her students.
Sigune Hamann explores how experimental treatment, physical handling and viewing of images test and shift perception of ourselves relating to others. In Freshers Hamann splits images and assembles them into interchanging narratives.
The project continued in workshops with a photo-based record of students meeting, one to one, on their first college day at Oxford University, Waseda University, Tokyo and Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London between 2016-18.
Freshers exists both as an artist book and as a wall installation of 100 photographs recently showing in the solo exhibition Did you spot the Gorilla at the Barn Gallery, St John’s Oxford.
