To me the problem of perception is that we try to make analogies of our way of seeing with machines, cameras, etc...all based on playing around with information until something interesting emerges. But in reality seeing is a function of our inherent co-dependence on Nature. Seeing is related to our Intuitive abilities of that 90% brain capacity that has nothing to do with information or intellect. It is immediate and visceral and void of analysis. In fact the miute you name a thing you stop seeing it. That is why thinking and painting don't go well together at the same time...
