The Gaze in Perspective (Introduction)

MARGARET IVERSEN
The Gaze in Perspective (Introduction)

Single point perspective has often been thought to consolidate the gaze, secure the position of the viewer and stabilize his sense of the world. The sort of vision encouraged by this scopic regime is disembodied, monocular, distanced, cut off from more intimate tactile relations to the world. A print by Durer showing an artist drawing a recumbent female model is often used to illustrate this kind of rationalization of sight.
