MILLER OPTICS 150 YEARS
The eye as a boundary layer between the outer, surrounding world and the inner, perceived world has always created space for reflection. It is a allegory of that self-referentiality from which we can never really squirm out: All knowledge must always be perceived and interpreted in one way or another. Even if there are many indications that large areas of our reality can be described, the description always differs from the thing itself. This applies in particular to our perception: how it is to experience is reserved for the experience. It can also be described, but that is then again the description of something and not the thing itself. Perhaps art will succeed in making this subjective experience tangible for others, i.e. making it intersubjective.
