dc.description.abstract Each of our senses plays a role in understanding space and objects. We learn to anticipate spatial and temporal relationships through the interaction of visual, auditory, and vestibular processes. Representation is an attempt to emulate reality, and when encountering a representation of a space or an object, we use the same experiential knowledge from our perceived realities to make sense of the depiction. Through projection of our experiential knowledge, we can understand a range of likeness beginning at a mere suggestion of form or space. In the case of pictorial representation, we interpret a depiction in relation to our experienced reality using vision alone. So, if we understand both reality and representation through vision and experiential knowledge, how does our encounter with actuality compare to our encounter with representation? en_US
