The fun of it… August 5, 2005

I am only really uploading this because I can, and because it’s fun to do so. I suppose this partly explains why one does most things, and why the painter painted this picture in the first place. But the cunning twist here is that the man who painted it is blind. There’s a now rather old article about him, from January 2005 at the New Scientist, here and it makes for fascinating reading – in a scientific way, of course – about how much seeing is done purely with the eyes and how much of it is the ability to see pre-programmed into our brains.

Expect me to be uploading whatever other bits of flotsam I find bobbing around my computer forthwith.
