Subject Area Psychology
Abstract Ames' Fenster läßt sich, entgegen den Intentionen des Autors, als ein Bild betrachten. Als solches zählt es zu den in puncto subjektive Bewegungsumkehr durchweg "verdächtigen" zentralperspektiven Projektionen, hier mit dem Beispiel einer Sphinx vertreten.
Ames' window - against the author's intention - can be seen as a picture. As such it belongs - where subjective motion reversal is concerned - to the "suspect" linear perspective projections, here shown with a sphinx.
