Martin Jay & scientific objectivity


Although this probably isn’t what Prof. O’Gorman had in mind, I think it still fits.  I’m working with Jay’s view of Cartesian perspectivalism as seeing a scientific view of things.  From my interpretation, modern-day examples include technical drawings (namely manuals), in the sense that it shows the steps to complete a task without an actual participant, implying the viewer’s participation.  This is why I chose to go with a minimalist approach, reducing the amount of detail (reflections, etc) and the amount of salient colours.

Let me know what you think.
