Abstract

This essay describes situations in which phenomena that are not pictures are nonetheless perceived as pictorial. Such paradoxical entanglements of the sphere of reality with the sphere of the picture are presented in two different constellations: first, in subjective literary modes of perception ("Medusa views") projecting a pictorial texture into scenes observed in metropolitan space, and second,, in the design of certain buildings and spaces aiming to integrate the immaterial visibility characterizing an image object into the actually present metropolitan area.
