Virilio Strikes Again

"...the entire history of Quattrocento perspectives is only ever a story of struggle, of the battle of geometers vying to make us forget the 'high' and 'low' by pushing the 'near' and 'far', a vanishing point that literally fascinated them even though our vision is actually determined by our weight and oriented by the pull of earth's gravity, by the classic distinction of zenith and nadir."
