Spatial Foundations of the Landscape

Ohta, Seiroku
The important point in the process where our visual action develops from 'seeing' to 'landscape' is that the visual action comes to obtain its spatial foundation. I studied mainly how visual actions performed the cognitive development from sensory to spatial views. And a visual-action field was conceptualized as the spatial foundation of the visual action. The visual-action field is composed of the events extending from 'here' to 'there', accompanied by our progressive intelligences. I examined the properties of events in Whitehead's natural philosophy, and attempted to denote visual-action fields by morphological languages. Moreover, I studied the systems of Lewin's and Piaget's life spaces, and analyzed how our life space could develop by means of visual-action.
