E. attempt to visualize time, memory and perception

A. trying to visualize time, memory and perception -- "Trying" is not idiomatic as the object of "artist's." In general, with the possessive form and gerunds, if a noun can be substituted, the noun is preferred ("the artist's trying" should be "the artist's attempt.") The possessive form with a gerund frequently is awkward. Here the combination is both awkward and not idiomatic.
B. trying that it visualizes time, memory and perception -- With respect to gerund, same problem as A. "Trying that" as a phrase is grammatically incorrect and makes the sentence nonsensical. "It" as a pronoun makes no sense and lacks an identifiable antecedent.
C. attempt to try to visualize time, memory as well as perception -- attempt to try and as well as are redundant
D. attempt to try and visualize time, memory and perception -- attempt to try is redundant; to try and is not idiomatically correct. The correct phrase is "try to," or "to try to"
E. attempt to visualize time, memory and perception
