    This project considers the distance between the viewer and what is being viewed. How does technology alter our perceptions of distance, scale, and structure? Technologies for viewing continue to evolve, from the Camera Obscura to the telescope to the atomic force microscope; each new technology raises questions about what is real versus what is an artifact of the viewing process. For example, how does the framed vision of the microscope differ from the framing induced by the World Wide Web? Discontinuities induced by these media can undermine what Husserl calls the 'inner’ and 'outer’ horizons of experience. These horizons are vital to architecture and to what we might call 'telepistemology’: the study of how distance influences belief, truth, and perception.
