Inspiration for the Flower Portraits. The flower portraits are based on two related topics of psychology. One is the Rorschach’s inkblots and the other is a phenomena called pareidolia. Hermann Rorschach introduced a psychological test by using these inkblots in 1921. It is a psychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analysed using psychological interpretation, complex algorithms, or both.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus (an image or a sound) wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern where none actually exists. Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, or the “man in the moon”. Instead of inkblots flowers are used to create these portraits. What kind of portrait you might recognize is up to the person who looks at these portraits. Human faces and heads of animals are symmetrical built, and it is the secret of symmetry which unfolds the viewers imagination.
