image plane

[′im·ij ‚plān]
(optics)
The plane in which an image produced by an optical system is formed; if the object plane is perpendicular to the optical axis, the image plane will ordinarily also be perpendicular to the axis.

A simple, strangely elegant pairing, the placement of a painting on a tile wall recalled the installation at Lo Scarabeo sotto la Foglia of its owner's modern art collection in the building's tiled interior--though here the functionality of the tile wall was of course part of Crowner's work itself--and foregrounded the relationship between work and frame, figure and ground, image plane and objecthood, painting and architecture.
However, the application of image moments is restricted to planar objects, and it is generally required that the object plane be parallel to image plane at the desired pose.
