A picture can be explained in different ways

What do you see at this picture?

• A Ufo landed accidentily on a nineteenth century building.
• This photo is manipulated; this cannot exist in the real world.
• The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. A new building constructed over the corner of an old building.

Explaining or interpreting this picture automatically feels like it invokes conceptual thinking by reducing it to a single frame of interpretation/ meaning/ reference, thereby reducing it's multidimensionality. Before interpreting it mentally, the picture feels like two objects fused, where the dark, modern, shiny and dynamic one is dominating the lighter, historic, tranquil and relatively static one.
