Diplopy of Space
“Diplopia, commonly known as double vision, is the simultaneous perception of two images of a single object that may be displaced horizontally, vertically, or diagonally in relation to each other.
Text in the window:
I go around and stop to watch (as I often do) the window of a closed bar. I stand so close that I touch the glass with my nose. First, I survey exposed decoration, but after a while I look inside the bar. Chairs, doors, tables.
And their interrelationship in the room. I’m going back to my favorite activities – watching windows. Suddenly it seems to me that something in the rear slightly changed, but when I look in that direction, everything is in place, the same as before. Chairs, doors, tables.
To my surprise I find that the same tiny transformation occurs in the window. I change my view , but the decoration looks the same. I have the feeling again that something slightly changed in the space behind.
I focus on the window and a I try to examine the change in the rear with my peripheral view. But in the moment I set my eyes on it, seems that nothing has changed.
It appears that the window and the rear space is connected in some way. I try to capture the changes in space and find the point in which both changes happens simultaneously. Objects in the front and back lose their details and duplicate. But the change of space is not as interesting as I expected. Actually I have a feeling that I have experienced it before. Uninterrupted by other circumstances I go back again to my favorite activities – watching windows.
