Is there such a thing as a visual digression?
Common practice in oral and written arts – I found myself carried into a visual digression! The diamond atoms’ symmetry led me to work on an optical illusion made famous by Hermann in the late 1800s. The “white dot in the black circle” after effect. Maybe it’s one of the reasons for diamond popularity – leaving an after-effect optical illusion in the viewer’s eye?
