Photographer Gabor Ekecs uses his work to express humans' busy everyday lives and how their constant rushing interrupts their ability to see what is in plain sight. The artist shows that people see only what they want and believe what they are told -- the reality is often different.

Ekecs' work allows viewers to question how they visually process information. His process for digitally remastering the architectural images is simple, but the results create a big impact on how information is processed. By altering components of each photo through rearrangement, alteration and changing the sequence of the photo's components, Ekecs creates an entirely different picture.

Viewers can often identify the building that has been altered but, on further inspection, they'll notice that each frame within the photo is not in its original order. This gets one asking how the changed image impacts the meaning of the original structure. The images above are Gabor Ekecs' remastering of Disney Hall.
