Cubism is still important to our evolving notion of reality. The Renaissance saw the self before a window onto nature and created a reflection, as does a mirror. Cubists found the mirror shattered, each shard with its own varied vision.
Functioning bodies are only understood at a distance, every working piece cannot be observed simultaneously. Cubism shows, in frozen time, the interaction and revelation of the seemingly disparate, but wholly together vision. It shows mechanisms of interaction.
The technological unification of the globe at the turn of the twentieth century pushed so much information into what was once a singular vision that the mirror broke. The exponential progression of such technologies today degrades even the smallest remaining fragments.
