"When Leonardo Da Vinci walked down the street his source of light created an illusion of sculptural dimension. Candlelight, sunlight, these shaped the direction in which the accustomed eye saw its reality. We see and perceive differently, even though we may continue to be accustomed in our minds to see as they saw. Our light world is caught in refraction, interpenetration. Sometimes we really wonder if we are seeing what we are."
