Some intriguing ways that we "perceive" 2d objects as 3d, etc. In "A", we see a somewhat ascance view of a cube as it is commonly drawn with the hidden lines opaquely hidden. If i tilt it sligly "B", then it now starts to appear to be a flat hexagon with lines in the middle. Note that i've drawn it so that the "off to the distance" axis in "A" now makes it almost clearly look like a rectangular solid rather then a cube. If i then shorten the vertical lines "C", then it begins to look like a flattened hexagon. Hmmm ... tie this to both Arnheim and Kandinsky and then of course back to both Ad Rhinehardt and Kasimir Malevich,.... Affordances in learning theory... hmmm
