This project is oriented towards the ideas of Gestalt theory combined with genre based narratives. Gestalt theory states that we perceive objects or events as an organized whole. In essence, when we “see” something our brain automatically creates meaning through its configuration and the configuration is influenced by our experience and learning. Genre on the other hand, acts as a frame through which to process authenticity. As Susan Sontag states in her work, On Style, “Genre is central to the self authenticity. The self can only be passed as ‘authentic’ in relation to a legible set of conventions.”
