In Altered Landscape, the familiar symbol of the American Holstein cow is presented from a surprising new perspective, as multiple viewpoints all converge in the same space. The patterns, as the figures merge and mirror each other, are reminiscent of the Rorschach inkblot test. The test is designed to reveal the inner emotions of the viewer, along with their assumptions, cultural influences and prejudices. What I find compelling about this kind of psychological testing is how the patient might edit their responses to fit what they think the doctor might want to hear from them, the same way we try to edit our identities to better assimilate within a group. There is a kind of identity splitting that occurs in this process: an outward curated persona, like that presented through social media, and an inward monologue, isolating our insecurities of otherness as a vulnerability.
