It’s baffling to imagine how we all see the world in different ways. Have you ever wanted to experience what it’s like to peer through the eyes of someone else?
Luckily, for those of us who do, there are people all around actively trying to share how they perceive the world!
As the person known for bringing forth the art movement that focused mainly on the light and color present in a scene, opposed to the line and shape, it’s a bit ironic that later in his life, Claude Monet developed severe cataracts that clouded his vision and altered his perception of color. This affected not only his mental health but what he put on his canvas.
Thankfully, Monet didn’t stop creating even after his cataracts developed. Here’s one of our favorite channels, It’s Okay To Be Smart, putting a little science spin on how by noting the appearance of his work, we can see how those filmy lenses had changed his world… and what he saw after he had one removed.
It’s almost as if he entered three different worlds in his lifetime — all dependent on the amount and what frequency of light he was able to perceive.
Isn’t the human body awesome? Science has quite the knack for revealing truths about ourselves and our world that are truly amazing. The more we know about what’s happening, the more we can appreciate how the world we each see is so uniquely designed!
Take a look at these articles below to find even more works of art that show us how amazing this world is in their own ways!
