Inspiration can come in infinite forms, and to say the work of Hermann Rorschach inspired Apophenic Art would be a severe understatement.

For his visionary approach to symmetrical art, coupled with his groundbreaking work in psychology truly helped us (a whole century later) to further understand the workings of the human mind - especially when mirror point symmetry is used to distort.

This understanding and influence set us free to create and explore the wonders of the Apophenic world, and his early work became a true artistic inspiration.

He was a man with a mind that superseded his time and his early fascination with Klecksography (the making of fanciful, symmetrical inkblot pictures) led him to invent a revolutionary psychoanalytical test.

Ink is splatted onto paper. The paper is folded in half and then pressed to form a near perfect ‘Random and Meaningless symmetrical image.” This test was named “The Rorschach Inkblot Test” and is better known than the terms Apophenia/Pareidolia.

The test was reportedly designed to reflect unconscious parts of the personality that "project” onto the stimuli.

In the test, individuals are shown 10 inkblots – one at a time – and asked to report what objects or figures they see in each of them.

 So tell me - what do you see?
