Paper Abstract

We recognize the outside world as a 3-D space in spite of its two-dimensional retinal image. We demonstrated a two- dimensional photograph could be perceived as a 3-D scene in a special 'dimension-up' viewing condition that a subject observed only the photograph. The color constancy was then realized in part even in the photograph and its degree increases depending on the degree of 3-D recognition. A jumbled photograph was made from an original photograph taken for a room under incandescent lamps. Either was on a wall of an experimental booth illuminated by white light. In the normal viewing condition, the subjects perceived neutral white for almost the same test stimulus whether in the original or the jumbled. In the dimension-up viewing condition, the shift of the neutral perception for the original photograph was larger than for the jumbled. This should indicate that the recognized visual space of illumination (RVSI) for the scene illuminated by incandescent lamps was constructed for the original photograph and the test stimulus was perceived as an object in the scene. The degree of the color constancy was larger in the photograph perceived as a 3-D scene than in that perceived as a mere two-dimensional scene.
