Pictorial space is a mental entity that coincides with experience. It is seen as controlled hallucination and is greatly related to consciousness. This chapter provides the early beginnings of pictorial space and the method by which to approach the investigation on it, i.e., by psychophysics. It also discusses the influence of the viewing mode, pictorial cue, and method on the investigation. The geometry of pictorial space is also presented.
