dc.description.abstractThis article discusses the perceptual phenomenon of visual indeterminacy in an art historical and scientific context and considers its role in certain heightened states of awareness. Further philosophical implications of the phenomenon are discussed, specifically the suggestion that visual indeterminacy may point to an inherent contradiction in the relationship between mind and world. This discussion is then related to a body of artwork produced by the author over some 20 years. The article concludes visual indeterminacy is a fruitful subject for further interdisciplinary research as it draws on ideas from the arts, sciences and humanities.en
