Through the conjunction of the above perspectives I aim to understand how a person perceives the other and what influences his perception. I see perception contingent on different states of mind that changes throughout the day, week and year, and contingent on the context a person is in. Both the state of mind and the environment influence the identification process that is inherent to empathy. Film and performance studies bring to light how these processes operate, and specifically media itself reveals how perception can be influenced and manipulated.
