Perhaps what I am about to reveal is a product of my own bias as a budding art historian, yet I believe that the sense of sight is the most unique in its power over our minds. I recognize that all five senses are equally important and interconnected, becoming the sum of our experiences (merci, Roland Barthes). Yet sight is different in its volatility, for how we perceive something can change depending on its context.

This privatized perspective is utterly destructive to everything alien to it...
