STUDYING PERSPECTIVE




On the Soul and On Memory and Recollection,  by Aristotle (Author), Joe Sachs (Translator)
In the book, On the Soul, Aristotle said: “Now for the thinking soul images take the place of direct perceptions; and when it asserts or denies that they are good or bad, it avoids or pursues them. Hence the soul never thinks without a mental image.” While I have spent a lot of time studying multiple perspectives and shifting perspec-tive, I seem to have overlooked an important issue. That is human perception. When a person is looking at an object, what do they see? What are they thinking? The two actions of looking and thinking affect the human perspective simultaneously so I will delve into the human senses through design in this section.
