La visione quindi non procede dal particolare al generale, ma parte dalle configurazioni strutturali essenziali. Su questo particolare impulso si basa il test di Rorscharch. Ma come si descrivono gli spazi spaziali in una forma? Una soluzione potrebbe essere quella di individuare dei punti che compongono la figura in un sistema di coordinate cartesiane, oppure descrivere attraverso formule geometriche.

Arnheim at University of Michigan the year after his revised edition of this book came out. It was a life-changer for me. I had no idea that 25 years later I would become a docent at the art museum.
Seeing, is a creative act His opening sentence of the introduction is as true today as it was in or Art may seem to be in danger of being drowned by talk. The appearance of any element depends on its place and function in an overall pattern.
All perceiving is also thinking I must re-read this book -- I know I use what I learn from it now, almost 50 years after I first encountered it as I guide people to observe balance, shape, form, orientation in space, line, contour, light, color, movement, dynamics This is a textbook slog. But so worth it. As a non-artist trained in the sciences , this opened my eyes to the many things that are surely fundamental to practicing artists as regards composition.
And I see the value of formalism in art, particularly in its teaching as a craft. But as a lover of art, I also see the danger. I am wary of crushing the pure joy of discovery under a heavy pile of nuanced theory and rigid comparative analysis.
I know what I like, damn it , I am thankful for these many years of having it all just wash over me. And yet also thankful to now have a more studied basis to understand why it is that I may like or not like a certain work. It seems to me that this book is essential to any aspiring artist. For the rest of us, this is a gift that opens the door to deeper understanding.
