THE IRIS THEME
A visionary dream has taken over the world of LOAD. The vision of what is around us, who we are and who we want to become flashes in front of our eyes. But are we all seeing the same apparition? The iris controls the pupil’s diameter dictating how the image of light is recorded in our brain. So, what if the iris is indeed the way we control how we perceive the world. No iris is identical to another human’s, so does that mean that none of us see the world the same? The Autumn 2023 ISSUE is here to view the cosmos from a different perspective. We delve into the optical stimuli in the way we see colour, shapes and geometry. But vision is not just optical. LOAD looks at the way perception is controlled and affected by humans, for perception is our true vision and belief. So, delve into the IRIS ISSUE dream with us, for a dreamer is one who can only find their way by moonlight. Dream on!
