Abstract: The use of language mostly assumes a logical system of words and concepts to think and act. You would expect that this is necessary in order to organize our thoughts and insights. But are words really indispensable to communicate thoughts and insight through images? Our search for a "visual logic" does not follow the same logical system. You don’t read an image from top to bottom and from left to right. The image reveals itself in numerous pieces that sequently and individually attract attention. To be (pro)active in our own environment, we must dare to appeal to our most complex cognitive and perceptional functions. In our theory and in our presentation we will force our brain/neurons to an uncommon action. A "plastic" example (try to imagine): the virtual forces in the negative space and in the apparent area between the shapes that become part of your experience. So the image you experience is never a straightforward, simple reality. But as a viewer, you shouldn’t experience complex as "complicated." Enjoy the multiple, the versatile that you can tread as a inquisitive and hungry adventurer in your own thoughts. And create a interspace in where your thoughts can land. In behalf of getting where you've never been, you have to do something you never did.
