Al Mefer is a photographer and neuroscientist based in Alicante. His series “Deserts of the Future” is a visual study of sandy landscapes and colors. With his art, he aims to prove that our biological configuration determines the way we perceive the world.
“In my experience, aesthetic expression represents a sort of meditation, as understood in Buddhist traditions, in which I liberate myself from needs and feelings and the only focus left is the creation of the artwork, without judgement, thoughts of enjoyment nor desperation. In the arts my interest for social, psychological and biological events finds a means to muse about the phenomenology of reality conceptualized through the experience of the dissimilar.”
