Egocentric perspective: Depicting the body from its own point of view
MetadataShow full item record
We are almost always visible to ourselves. Depending on how you are seated, reclining or standing you will see parts of your nose, legs, hands, arms, shoulders or trunk from your own point of view. Yet these everyday features of our visual world are rarely depicted and hardly ever in a way that accords with our perceptual experience. In this paper the author considers why we tend to ignore this “egocentric perspective” and how it can be represented.
