Imagination’s Shadow is an essay aiming to find parallels between Plato’s ‘shadow world’ and contemporary artistic experience. The piece challenges the presuppositions that the world we perceive is real. Through an analysis of the phenomenology of perception, using artistic experience and creation as an example, Teismann replaces this disguised reality with a conceptual world of imagination, no more or less ‘real’ than that perceived by our senses.
