Two types of perspective, linear and natural, are relevant to human vision. Linear perspective results from the projection of the three-dimensional world on a planar surface. Linear perspective has been widely applied in drawings and paintings to create an illusion of depth. Natural perspective is an aspect of our visual perception of the three-dimensional world, i.e., visual space. The literature on linear perspective is extensive whereas the literature on natural perspective is scarce. Many questions regarding the perspective nature of visual space are yet unanswered. Questions like (how) does the perspective of visual space develop with age? Does perspective depend on the structure of the biotope? Are there cultural differences in how perspective is experienced? Is perspective represented in animals? What and where is the neural correlate of perspective? What has been the influence of perspective on the development of visual art? Can perspective play a role in computer vision?
Papers are invited on all aspects of the perspective of visual space. A wide range of scientific research will be considered that addresses one of the above or related questions. Welcome are conceptual and theoretical analyses, psychophysical and neurophysiological work, as well as historical and philosophical overviews.
