The Object Stares Back: On the Nature of Seeing by James ElkinsThis is an interesting book about the physical and mental elements that comprise human sight. The author, with various examples from across the world and centuries, illustrates how, even though it seems complete and seamless, our view of the world is fragmented and incomplete. He goes into different reasons for this fragmentation, some physical and some social. The chapter on blindness didnt seem so well done to me--he more talks about how normal sight really incorporates blindness into itself than about perceiving the world as a blind person (this disappointed me). Best read in chunks, this is worth checking out if you want to muse about perception and reality.

Also, his status as an artist was assured by the critical attention paid him by Beaumont Newhall, then curator at the Museum of Modern Art, followed by a celebratory retrospective of his work featured at the Riverside Museum in
