The word qualia (to pronounce / kwɑlia /, singular quale) comes from the Latin qualis, which means of what kind, what species, what nature.
Qualia are the properties of perception of the human experience.
Inaccessible and ineffable in the absence of a direct and personal intuition, they constitute the very essence of the experience of life and of the world.
Intrinsic or immediate, they are not relational properties, and any interpersonal comparison is impossible.
Through her particular imagery, Marie-Josée Roy immerses the viewer into this place where words do not exist.
We are bathed in This Unique Force which animates all, but is perceived with as many differences as the number of humans inhabit the planet, each with our own experience, consciousness and intelligence.
Marie-Josée Roy shows us the cohesion and diversity that lies within each human being through this bond that unites us.
