This essay suggests the spectator is always 'knowing; as such, always circles (a)round any work of art to unpick, to understand. Case-studies examine metaphor, empathy, repetition and re-working. Concepts from phenomenology are drawn on to reference reciprocal agent-action-object relations, mutual embodied simulation and mirror mechanisms as an embodied approach underpinning inter-subjectivity.
