This conceptual piece is inspired by left field visual neglect. This is when a stroke in the right side of the brain interrupts the visual pathways (the lower plate represents the visual pathways from eye (tomato) to the back of the brain) and an inability to 'see' the left-hand side of one's visual field occurs. In fact, mechanisms for seeing are intact but the brain can not give 'attention' to half the visual field - hence half the fry-up in darkness.
