Just something I've been thinking about that falls into the category of the meaning in art, something related to Barthes' Third Meaning. Or maybe its just navel gazing, I can't quite tell.

If you would, take a minute to look at these three images (my custom colorforms on lexan).

What changes when I then show you/ tell you this?

And title this The Annunciation?

And title this The Birth of Venus?

For your reference:

Would you rather not have known or does it add the the experience in some way? Would you be interested in knowing that I plan to "graph" the great works of art (as designated by Vasari thru Janson).
