In this chapter I attempt to demonstrate that perceptual activities are not simply engaged in the business of collecting and processing environmental information (1) but also can effectively inject information into the environment, enriching the stimulus data. Understanding how this can happen is critical to a theory of the psychology of graphics. Fortunately, graphics provide us with figural ambiguity, a tool that is ideally suited to unveil how information is added during perceptual processing.
