A model to explain how organisms perceive the environments they live in. Instead of perceiving the environment objectively, they use available cues such as day and night to make inferences or judgements based on these observations. First proposed by F.gon Brunswick (1903 - 1955).

LENS MODEL: "The Lens model implies that we, as organisms make inferences based on what we see, instead of simply understanding what we observe."
