VIEWPOINT: the presumed vantage point of the viewer in an artwork. Our relationships are greatly affected by the angles that we are perceiving them from. The artist has the utmost control when the place the viewpoint for the viewer. It is the ultimate tool of manipulation for we are forced to view the work exactly how the artist wants us to.
