Aspective is a compound word which combines both ASPECT and PERSPECTIVE.
According to the Society of Figurative Arts, the aspective view exists to describe the art of ancient Egypt, where figures were simultaneously displayed in both profile and frontal view.
Also extant in Photography, the aspective view is showing the most identifiable parts of the subject.
Lastly, in art composition, the aspective view is showing the most identifiable parts of the subject which provide the viewer the maximum amount of information from different angles.
Borrowing from all of these definitions, The Stars are Eyes now introduces aspective designs in the art of the Abelam, an indigenous people of Papua New Guinea.
