« Inside Looking Out: Ernst Mach vs. the Hudson River | Main | Imago Frammeni: Boulle, the Dogon, Jouffret, the Simple and the Complex »



You might enjoy the movie "The Diving-Bell and the Butterfly" because much of the movie is from inside the head of the main character, looking out his left eye. Having suffered a stroke, he had been left paralysed, and unable to speak. He communicates with the world outside his head by moving his left eyelid.

The movie is based on a fabulous autobiography written by Jean-Dominique Bauby.


Looking at this picture again. I am taken by the fact that the right hand is actually drawing the image that we are looking at. Is Mach also arguing, in a rather subtle fashion, that we are the artists of our own lives?
