Art as Eye Movement
by Kenneth Hemmerick with notes by Fred Herscovitch
I have, while writing these past few pages, experienced a chair. My eye movement was something as follows:
(These eye movements will vary from person to person, and will change from time to time with observation of the same object.)
Here is a visual description of my inner eye's movement of perceiving the chair with the eyes closed.
To a mathematician or physicist this diagram looks like a vector or a visual description of motion and direction of energy.
A vector can be described in 3-dimensional space with respect to a system of Cartesian coordinates. A tensor is a magnitude by which components of a system may be transformed linearly and of which the notion of a vector is a special case. Tensor analysis is used in advanced engineering calculation as well as Relativity Theory.
