Face Pareidolia is a BIG Part of a lot of my Art Photography, as I see faces in EVERYTHING!

[Face Pareidolia] Pareidolia (/pærˈdliə/ parr-i-doh-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the man in the moon, the moon rabbit, and hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds. (Wikipedia)

It is a form of apophenia, which is when people see patterns or connections in random, unconnected data.

————————

Face Pareidolia:  For Example, in the previous posted image, “Abstract #1, 23 March 2017”, I am posting it again with some of the faces I see in this artwork.  You may see others, more, or less than I do, but this is a real psychological manifestation.  For me, I see at least 18 faces immediately.  I actually see 20, but two of the faces are upside-down, and are skulls.


Intended or Not Intended?

This image has unintended face constructions.  They just became aware to me after the construction of the art photo.  Whereas, my Fire Portraits Series is intended.

Supposedly, Psychiatrists say that the ability to see these faces in objects means your brain is hardwired very well—that’s good to know!

I thought this was an interesting connection between art and psychology and wanted to share with you.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUR DOCTOR WHEN THEY TELL YOU SOMETHING IS ACCEPTABLE WHEN THEY ARE NOT THE ONE WHO HAS TO LIVE WITH IT?

Here’s a good question for you — WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOUR DOCTOR WHEN THEY TELL YOU SOMETHING IS ACCEPTABLE WHEN THEY ARE NOT THE ONE WHO HAS TO LIVE WITH IT?


I saw the orthopaedic doctor on Monday about my “healed” fractured hand.  It has been 7 weeks since my accident, in which I fractured my 5th metacarpal bone, right hand.


The doctor says:  “OK, looks good.”

I say:  “What!  I can’t fully close my hand, I have nerve damage, and my small finger is permanently bent at an angle, and hurts like hell!”

Doctor says:  “For that kind of injury, that is ACCEPTABLE ANGULATION of the finger.”

I thought:  “WTF are you talking about?  You don’t have to live with a gimpy finger that is permanently bent in an unnatural direction!”  But I basically held back my thought, and asked, “is there a surgical solution?”

The doctor said: “No, it will make it worse” (he claimed).


It’s easy for doctors to simply say things to patients as if we don’t feel stressed out about a medical condition that we will apparently have to live with, even though it makes life painful and difficult.


Apparently, 40 to 50 degrees out of alignment is “ACCEPTABLE ” for a 5th metacarpal fracture!  THAT’S INSANE!

So, what do you say to a doctor, when they tell you that A CONDITION YOU HAVE IS ACCEPTABLE, but they don’t have to live with it…?

Abstract Light Streaks #340 by Nawfal Johnson – Smokephotographist 

Title:  Abstract Light Streaks #340.

Creation Date: 18 January 2017.

“ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS” SERIES.

Series Years:  2015 – 2017.

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

This is a collection of nighttime, time-exposure, light streak photography.  There is something about nighttime photography that I really like:  it allows me to make light fluid and I can make it twist and turn however I wish to get the effect I want.  There are some happy accidents too with this kind of photography. 

LOCATION:

All of these photographs were created in Penang, Malaysia.

Photography Genre:

  I would classify this as something I call, “Active (or Fluid-Light) Abstract Expressionism Photography.”

Satan Extinctor Vitae, Fire Portraits Series by Nawfal Johnson 

Title:  “Satan Extinctor Vitae”.

Creation Date: 16 March 2017.

“Fire Portraits” Series.

Year:  2016 to 2017.

Influence:  “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs:  Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.

Note  1:  After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”  Note 2:  One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels.  On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity,  and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”.  Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons. Note 3:  My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire.  Angels of fire, I think is a contradiction.  Note 4:  In this transmogrification of SATAN, he appears to be textured and tactile.

“Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace

And rest can never dwell, hope never comes

That comes at all.”  Paradise Lost.  Milton.

SHOES SALE ABSTRACT #1 Urban Multi-Form, Colour Field Photography by Nawfal Johnson 


Title: SHOES SALE ABSTRACT #1.

Genre:  Environmental Urban Abstract.

Date: 7 March 2017.

Location :  Penang.

—————————

I looked down on this mass of shoes, with all of its colours, and all of its order, and I knew I had to take a photograph of this.  This is the type of subject that grabs my attention, the abstract,  whether it be in an urban setting, like this, or in the environment, out in nature, or something I put together artificially as a tabletop subject.

It kinda reminds me of that photograph that was sold for a record high amount, consisting of a monotonous amount of canned goods sitting on shelves in a grocery store.  This is kind of like that but my image includes people to give a sense of scale.  The people in the frame also help break up the monotony, adding time reference because of the movement blurs, and shadows, giving the image different tones and depth.  The image becomes sort of like a Colour Field picture, or a Multi-Form picture.  This is my Mark Rothko influence shining through.
Now, Christies, how about auctioning this image off for me so I don’t have to continue suffering from Van Gogh Syndrome!

Photo Exhibition at St Giles The Gardens Hotel Mid Valley Kuala Lumpur Malaysia AND NOVARTIS Corporation Malaysia AS AWARENESS CAMPAIGN Media Conference 9 March 2017, Was a TOTAL SUCCESS!

A view of four of my art photographs at my solo art exhibition, with the Mid Valley Kuala Lumpur, FANTASTIC skyline, in the background.  The exhibition took place on the top floor, the 29th floor, of The Gardens Hotel.  I am SO grateful to NOVARTIS Corporation Malaysia, for sponsoring my exhibition!  I am also so thankful that they gave me the opportunity to speak at the Ankylosing Spondylitis Media Conference to tell my story of living with AS for the past 35 years.  

I wasn’t nervous at all speaking to all of the media in the conference because I had such great help from the wonderful and beautiful-caring people from NOVARTIS Corporation Malaysia, EDELMAN Kuala Lumpur, and MICE Podium (who helped me with getting my exhibition all organized —thank you ).  I also wasn’t nervous because I had practiced my speech twice daily for a month, no kidding!
☆ Thank you Sohphee at Photo Media for doing a BEAUTIFUL job printing my art photographs!  🙂  http://www.photomedia.com.my/
I also am grateful and honoured to have shared the speakers’ stage with Bernice  Chan (Franchise Head for Immunology & Dermatology, Neuroscience, of Novartis Malaysia), Dr. Amir Azlan Zain (Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist), and Associate Professor Dr. Sargunan Sockalingam, Consultant Rheumatologist [UMMC] and President of the Arthritis Foundation, Malaysia).  They were all great speakers and so nice to me, and I learned a lot from them.
They said I did a good job!  So, thanks to them and all of the media.
It was also announced that there will be an AS Run Event in Kuala Lumpur , on 7 May 2017.  It will help raise awareness about AS AND raise funds for patients to get the treatment they need, so if you are in Malaysia, you really MUST attend this event.  You can probably find out more information  from the Arthritis Foundation Malaysia.
I want to thank the talented and great film crew who spent two days with me filming a documentary of my life with AS, and the great film artwork will be available for viewing in the near future…I’ll let you know.  Thanks Jack and the entire Grenos Film crew — https://m.facebook.com/grenosfilm/

Thanks so much to all involved in this Conference!
And of course, thank you Nadira, you were SO HELPFUL and generous getting me organized for this event and helping me NOT GET LOST in KLIA…I am indeed honoured to know you, and everyone I got to know from Novartis, Edelman and MICE Podium.

my soul do thy lord?
Mephistopheles: Enlarge his kingdom.
Faustus: Is that the reason he tempts us thus?
