Historically, through various means of representation, notions of dimensionality have been mirrored as both epistemological and ontological truth. From the invention of linear perspective in the Renaissance and axonometric rendering in the 19th century, to new conceptions of time in Modernism throughout the 20th century, dimensional comprehension forms part of the framework for cultural movements. Cinema was the ubiquitous Modern medium partly because it embodies time as its inherent material. As all matter exists in a multi-dimensional matrix, the fixed material of 2D and 3D media operate from a particular set of historical as well as material conditions. Understanding and participating in higher dimensions means engaging imagination and intuition.
