Abstract Der Film "Bewegungsumkehr und Zentralperspektive" (K 132) demonstriert, daß auch andere Bilder als Amessches Fenster, sofern nur gleichfalls linearperspektivisch konstruiert, sich in der Rotation phänomenal wie dieses verhalten können. Hier wird das anschauliche Verhalten einer aus einem solchen Bild abgeleiteten, stets rechtsdrehenden Silhouette demonstriert (Graham 1968, Kalkofen 1983).
Film "Motion Reversal and Linear Perspective" (K 132) demonstrates that apart from Ames' window other images - if they are constructed in linear perspective - can behave the same way phenomenally in rotation. Here the visual behaviour of a dextrorotatory silhouette derivated from such an image is demonstrated (Graham 1968, Kalkofen 1983).
