    Abstract

    In response to the invitation to deliver a “provocation” as part of the “As Yet Impossible: in human performance” symposium I wrote three short essays. I was unsure what a provocation was, and if my thoughts and subsequent presentation would be provocative. The response of those present to my “provocation” was interesting. The provocation turned in to a dialogue. Questions were posed; issues were raised, by me and members of the audience, and there was much discussion that continued throughout the day. In the weeks following the symposium, and based on the experience of presenting the three essays, I have rewritten parts and combined two into one. Here, I present the resultant two essays: “It’s all in the Umwelt!” and “How do we value a view?” These two essays explore different but related issues; they are presented to provoke debate, to spark ideas, and to explore the links between science and art.
