Schematic: Dissonance and Distortion

November 9-December 2

This body of work is a reflection on 2020 and 2021, and the rift in understanding that has broadened throughout our country over the past few years. Understanding another’s belief but still disagreeing, is one thing, while not being able to comprehend an opposition’s viewpoint, is another.

This body of work is a reflection on 2020 and 2021, and the rift in understanding that has broadened throughout our country over the past few years.

Understanding another’s belief but still disagreeing, is one thing, while not being able to comprehend an opposition’s viewpoint, is another. This type of disconnect has become widespread across the country. When people cannot understand each other’s thought processes, compromise feels impossible, and both sides find it easier to conclude that the other is delusional or uninformed.

Looking towards the future, and likely another tumultuous election, understanding what is happening to create and increase this divide feels pivotal. Becoming aware of something is often the first step in changing it. 

The artworks in this exhibition collectively explore this divide by examining key mental processes that contribute to this disconnect. These are cognitive distortions, or errors in thinking, and schemata, the mind’s organizational systems.
