The mind perceives everything as symbolic language, charged with meaning, even as the meaning is applied by the mind. 

Objects abstracted upset habits of casual association and call upon the viewer to re-establish meaning.

This engagement enlivens the object of perception and, in turn, the viewer.

It is said that the perceiver, what is being perceived, and the act of perception are one.

These ideas interest me.
