Ships in a Crate
As the title speaks for itself, this illustration is an allegory of ''the Allegory of the Cave''. In Plato's most known Socratic dialogue, the cave is a symbolic representation of conceivably antipodean reality versus our interpretation of it. Prisoners in the cave have no knowledge of another potential reality other than their own. They are chained and stuck, forced to look in one direction, seeing merely the shadows of objects projected on the wall before them by a firelight. Those shadows are their only channel to what they perceive as the 'real world'. On the other hand, the released captive represents the philosopher whose duty is to see through illusive appearances and give a lead on exploring the ultimate truth. However, even if we manage to pass beyond the wall of false appearances, how is it possible to know for certain that ''the truth'' we think we've reached is not another wall? Given that our consciousness is the only filter through which we perceive and interpret the world, aren't we perpetually trapped in what it allows us to see? This work invites you to mull over what reality means to you. This work could very well be deconstructed, given all sorts of purpose, or even authorized to challenge you in some other way.
