This project seeks to explore the aspects of the mind without visual imagery "Aphantasia". The project investigates the relationship between memory and mental visual imagery in the experimental methodology.

The project idea began when I discovered about aphantasia by chance, listening to BBC Radio 4. By finding that I have this condition, I dedicate myself to participate in a case study to initiate this research.

I use the camera, scanner, cyanotype, sketches, and poetry of Iranian poets like (Rumi, Sadi) as a medium to depict how aphantasic people contemplate images by using different layers of their brain to remember without the benefit of the mind's eye.
