An artistic study of visual perception, by an artist of high functioning autism, who sees the world in patterns to produce geometric structures of creative perceptual organisation. By using squares collectively, they become a three-dimensional object, that translate onto a flat surface as two-dimensional. The spatial distribution of the work is translated into mathematical equations with the assistance of the modernist grid and as such has the potential to create geometrical illusion, that may affect the viewer. It is in this dialogue with the viewer, works of cognitive immersion are presented to create neuro-typical responses, as a brain-led activity, when engaged in the work.

This work is to inspire a synchronised cognitivism, beneficial to those visually engaged in the process of the work, inclusive for a diverse audience. By applying logical schema to my rules-based art methodologies I can construct perspective circuits into geometric equations to represent a three-dimensional solid. A perceptional phemomena exists when organised to represent a two-dimensional plane of edges, faces and vertices. A static representation of a linear object becomes apparent by using Cartesian linear visualization and when applied as mark-making within the warp and weft threads I create form and shape, as harmony and balance within the modernist grid, a metaphor for the placing of order into the day-to-day of modern life.
