- Original title:

- Abstract:
The same environment, a landscape, the oasis, can concretely not be seen, understood or perceived in a similar way by different people. It is as if this system-object could display various faces or more convincingly as people can find various faces depending on his backgrounds, concerns, interests. This ‘faces’ are so different that they come to be nearly opposite. It is disturbing almost because I attribute to these ‘lookers’ (‘regardeurs’, in the meaning of M. Duchamp) the status of social agent of the palm-grove and the oasis world, i.e. taking obviously part, actively or passively, to the evolution of this environment.
