Human eye is bored by monotonous landscape. We are depressed by gray skies, unending plain under the wing of an airliner, featureless urban sprawl, geometric canvasses in empty museum halls. Having evolved to meet the challenges of a complex world, we enjoy complexity. Stormy sea entertains us by a spectacle of spatio-temporal complexity. It is imitated by entertainers overwhelming us by the information deluge of blinking images in video clips. We also do enjoy, however, the calm of spatial complexity: a mountain landscape, a forest, a meadow, a mosaic.
