For Seeing Neither Here Nor Elsewhere explores lenses and apertures as ocular portals. How we see shapes our reality: in certain folk beliefs, peering through a holed stone allows you to see into the fairy realm; gazing into crystal balls enables some to see into the otherworld and glimpse the future; and looking through a tiny glass ball within an early microscope made the unseen world of microbes visible to us for the first time.
