We know about "variations on a theme" in music. Variations are introduced in a certain theme in point of melody (to a certain extent), rhythm, relative values of the notes, harmony. Some composers are known to revive the works of other musicians, as a homage. It is also known that composers use to introduce cadences of their own in the concertos created by others.
The bioptical art permits to introduce similar modalities, as I shall show in the following lines. Many compositions of the modern plastic art succeed in conveying only a little of the artist's sensitivity. They have a high entropic degree. Art critics try to cover the distance between the artist and the recipient subject. I provide the opportunity to introduce in well-known compositions a different type of wordless comments, with the help of bioptical means. They may complement known types of visual psychotherapy with beneficial effects.
For illustration, I have chosen compositions from the field of Suprematism, De Stijl, and Minimal Art.
I have retained some fundamental elements which are common to their manifestos:
- compositions with minimum signs
- perfect performance
- avoiding any allusions to reality
- somewhat restrictive criteria, as to colour, form graphics and space
Those artistic currents have aroused major concern in art critique. On the other hand they also provide facilities for introducing bioptical stimuli.
Simplicity is primordial and there is no subjective representation in minimalism; it is devoid of any symbols and plays only on forms and colours, avoiding emotion in a literal sense: an art devoid of any subjective and objective feelings". (Wikipedia)

Stereograms (arranged for crossed-eye viewing)
People who have trained and gain skills to see with the crossed-eyes will notice how
stereoscopic elements causes transposition in space of the background colors:
the effects occurs as we witness of the dematerialization of the substance.
