...Movement I think when it comes to the issue of motion, the brain normally does most of the work; hence, it plays a major role in creating what one sees. For instance, although the distance existing between the moon and earth never changes, a moon that has just surfaced normally appears much larger than when it is high in the sky (Hershenson 2). Similarly, at a railway crossing, the red lights flashing, that flare in alteration is static though normally appears to be in motion. Due to these examples, it is therefore evident that not everything that one sees is actually the way it appears (Backus & Oruc). In my opinion, the human brain is quite a powerful organ for it...

The modernists, such as Picasso, focused on the emotions themselves with little or no reference to the symbols or issues of the times in reaction to the perfectionism of the photograph and the machine age.
