Re: What is (and is not) "Negative Space"? (And how do you use it.)

Am I reading you correctly when I understand that the intrinsic property of an image is not directly available to us but we are in fact dealing with a construct of our visual apparatus which has all kinds of biases related to our animal nature, our culture and our mental state and which is in fact just a virtual phenomenon created by the neural networks that also create the image of ourselves looking at the image?

This is something I could relate to as to me it explains the pleasure I get from looking at impressionist and non-figurative art. I enjoy the 'aha'-experience when the image makes some deep sense in my mind even though I might not be able to express it in any relevant way. 'The Pleasure of Finding Out' as Feynman would say it.
