Pareidolia Project is an ongoing, organically evolving, inherently interactive, collaborative performance. Participation requires a level of vulnerability and curiosity seldom encountered by adults. Play and blind exploration are at the heart of the participatory aspect of this project. Existing and unavoidably expanding relationships between participants become intensely amplified in the close quarters of the experience. This physical bonding bleeds easily into the phychological and emotional.
From outside the mass of knitted limbs, the observer is lead astray when attempting to discover a familiar image of the body. Pareidolia, being a psychological phenomenon in which humans are prone to recognizing familiar images, pairs well with the the experience of regarding the piece. Although pareidolia is more specific to the tendency to notice things like human figures when they are in fact not there, it applies in the way that you see things in it as you would in the clouds.
