“At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible
 but hidden, the face of the person. It’s something that happens constantly. Everything we see
 hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest
 in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the
form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that
 is hidden and the visible that is present.”
René Magritte, 1898-1967
