There are, without a doubt, many places in the Giardino in which one would like to tarry in order to soak in the complete combined ambience of the landscape, the light and the works. Esther Seidel’s visitor gets to fulfil this desire. He stands on a viewing tower, which allows him to see the »labyrinthine wallpath« from above. But is he really observing it? He doesn’t appear to notice the unmistakeable Arman pyramid either. He only sees the images inside his head.
In the sculpture »The Seer« (No.32) we encounter this inward-looking gaze once again. The physiognomical similarity of the two figures is obvious, and we might think that the same man is standing at different spots all at once. In the Giardino, time and space behave differently to outside the entrance gates.
