"The object-ness of what is seen. No fast jump to metaphor or symbol. No ‘cultural context.’ Toon soon. Plenty of time for that later. First, the ‘reality’ of light on surface.
To simply see what something(s) looks like:
the relationships (visual) between the distances
the shape of movement
the thing themselves
not what they might mean later
Not to name, label, evaluate, like, hate; no memory or desire.
Just to see."
