1 a dark area or shape produced by a body coming between rays of light and a surface.
“Since things and my body are made of the same stuff, vision must somehow come about in them; or yet again, their manifest visibility must be repeated in the body by a secret visibility. “Nature is on the inside,” says Cézanne. Quality, light, color, depth, which are there before us, are there only because they awaken an echo in our bodies and because the body welcomes them.”
M. Merleau-Ponty, 1964, ‘Eye and Mind’.
