Does anyone seen the works of M. C. Escher? He deals with geometrical paradoxes within his works, but that's just one example. There are many artists, philosophers out there working on similar issues, searching for the answers for questions like: Is the mona lisa a lady or it's just lumps of paint? Is art just the trick of the eye?
I think it all goes back to the eye of the beholder. Artists that create paradoxes try to reach people in different ways, by doing different things. I think that's the best part about being an artist; the ability to screw with peoples minds
scheinandras asked a good question all that time ago, and I'm glad you picked up on it. ...the ability to screw with peoples minds...
Yes, a paradox does that, and what does "screw with peoples minds" mean?
I'll interpret that phrase as leading the brain to switch its processing from the usual and expected (the mundane) to the unusual and the unexpected (perhaps the enlightened). Lots to be said about this, especially when encountering an Escher drawing.
