A perspective without any vanishing points is called “zero-point” perspective. It occurs if the viewer is observing a nonlinear scene. The most common example of a nonlinear scene is a natural scene (e.g., a sky and its clouds) which frequently does not contain any parallel lines. A perspective without vanishing points can still create a sense of “depth,” as is clearly apparent in a photograph of a cloudy sky (more distant clouds have smaller scale features).

I try to imagine someone being trapped in this place, that looks like a jail, looking up. Would his desire of freedom be a world without perspective?
