My name is Robert John, I am an artist from Tooting, South London of Pakistani descent. I have worked across many iconic brands through my career as a designer for the BBC. In late 2012 I started an art project called What I See When I Look At.
The idea for the project was inspired by my father. My father lived with Parkinson’s for many years before he father passed away. During which, he developed Parkinson’s dementia, he began seeing things which were not visible to anyone else, yet they were so real to him, he could see these things, smell them, even touch and feel them.
This made me think about what our concepts of reality are and what we choose to actually see.
I have had a long connection to the hospital, I was born there, as were both my children. My father whose battle with Parkinson's dementia inspired the www.whatiseewhenilookat.com project was treated there till he passed away.
It's a great opportunity for me to raise money for the hospital charity that has given me and my family so much.
