If you draw a line on a piece of paper what do you have? A mark made of ink or graphite or something on the surface of the paper. A physical fact in the material world. But if you draw a little boat below the line and some clouds above it, then you have something else: a horizon far away in an imaginary world. You can see the line either way, but you can’t see it both ways at the same time. Like an electric light can be on or off but not both on and off.
In a drawing I just made, Ball and Cone are flying in an airplane that’s pulling a sign advertizing a Ball and Cone coloring book. On the ground, another sign on two posts announces, “Coloring fun for all ages!” Also on the ground, Black Ball and Cone are regarding the two signs, which to them advertize something not in the picture – a coloring book that may or may not exist in their imaginary world. But the whole drawing also serves as an advertisement for — and might be the cover of — an actual coloring book that may or may not exist – but certainly could exist — in our “real” world. In that sense, the signs and their words are on the surface of the page and not in the imaginary distance.
What happens when you switch from seeing lines on the surface of the paper to seeing them far away in imaginary space? What you’re looking at hasn’t changed but there seems to be some kind of change in your mental state. There’s something satisfying about flipping back and forth between the two different states. You can do it over and over. It’s fun, for some reason.
This isn’t something that happens only in looking at art. It happens all the time. Wittgenstein offers this thought experiment: you’re walking down the street and you see a stranger coming toward you. Suddenly you realize it’s someone you know, a close friend. The person is the same but you experience him or her in a different, new way. It’s hard to reverse that sort of event but sometimes it happens: your boyfriend or girlfriend or spouse suddenly can seem like a total stranger. Sometimes you can experience yourself that way. Your existence – your mind and/or your body or both — can suddenly seem strange to you. This is one thing that keeps being alive and conscious from being boring, I think.
