2 - What i see

If we except the small light grey circle which has no impact on what follows, the painting that
you have just seen displays three distinct colours, two of which are painted - a medium
grey, a cerulean blue and a third colour which, without being painted is nonetheless
apparent. Furthermore, the complexity of the visible is such that one cannot determine the
position of the unpainted colour.

means generation, in the sense of procreation.
