Aspect seeing, as well as the associated ability of aspect change, is reflected artistically and philosophically on several levels. One of the concerns is to question the potential of Wittgenstein’s engagement with perceptual psychology and construction of meaning in a reinterpretation by the arts, in their interaction and relationality.

The pre-arrangement: They will think about playing together for the first time when they sit at the pianos for the start of the concert.
