9 On perspective—and music

  • Stephen Robertson (author)
In this chapter, the author goes back again in time, to discuss architectural plans, maps (of the curved surface of the earth), and the idea of perspective in Western art. This leads on to cameras and their lenses. A further consideration of the relation between text and language, and our changing view of this, leads to a discussion on similar issues in images and in music, and the resulting different ways to represent these as digitised data.
