Diffraction of the mind

Do ideas between human minds travel in a straight line? How do they behave when they encounter an obstacle or an opening?

Are they subject to the phenomenon of diffraction, like the photon or the wave hitting the rock?

Each work, sculpture, painting or other media, is an idea that spreads like a wave. In any artistic creation, it is difficult, if not impossible, to say that it is perceived in the same way as the artist, or simply the person next to it. Whether it is realistic (a chair looks like a chair and its nature should be easily understood by all), or symbolic, descriptive or abstract, it naturally suffers the obstacle of individual interpretation. Arnaud believes that the intensity of its diffraction will then be proportional to the observer’s mind. This is what he calls the “Diffraction of Minds”.
