observation about artistic perspective and how the human mind perceives
If you look at a wall with a window and a view, it is not likely you would
mentally note both the wall, what is on it and what is outside the window
all at once. You are more likely to note the wall and the window contents
seperately. If you were suddenly faced with the 'all' and no tunnel or
limited perspective it is not likely you could do it all at once, even
given the tools to do so, until you got used to the new perspective.
Normally only artists try to see the whole wall and the contents of the
window but this takes practice.
