This relates to a technique made famous by the Italian Renaissance – Perspective – which creates an intense visual illusion – which absolutely flummoxed people at the time.
In out time, it seems to me, we are being flummoxed in another way. Which has resulted in our being vanished ourselves.
Two things are going on here. Everything explodes from one point in the past – it is not too clear when this was, sometime in the last five hundred years, for sure, with increasing emphasis on the last fifty years. Except people – which were being imploded in another direction. Technically, this could be called two-point perspective – with an opposite direction for time in each.
Does this make you feel dizzy? It sure does me – and I have to limit the amount of time I spend thinking about it.
