This article derives from research at University for the Creative Arts, and explores perception and the issues surrounding sight and the other senses. The fascinating questions of how we see, how we understand, and what we perceive as a result of an already learned or built-in knowledge will be explored from different points of view, both historical and current. Looking at key theories, explanations, and viewpoints from case studies, the text gives an insight into the eye and brain, and in order to understand sight and perception, blindness becomes a core subject throughout.
