For Sky Studies, artist Kyle Seis experiments with our visual perception, constructing photographic installations that challenge our notion of the celestial sphere. Where the sky itself is multidimensional, it is most often reproduced in visual art a flat expanse of blue. Seis’s optical illusions undermine traditional representations of sky, forcing us to consider the tension between an infinite reality and what is observable on its surface.

Drawing on his passion for architecture and understanding of geometry, Seis incorporates three-dimensionality into the photographic process with the use of mirrors and transparencies. His installations are composed of both photographic prints and projected imagery, folded and distorted to shift our understanding of light and shape. Here, Seis unveils disparities between objective reality and photographic representation, begging the question, in what ways is space itself organized by our own flawed perceptions?
