Description:

This class explores perceptual and technical aspect of pictures, and more precisely the capturing and depiction of reality on a 2D medium of photographs. The scientific, perceptual and artistic principles behind image making will be emphasized. Topics include the relationship between pictorial techniques and the human visual system; optics and digital imaging, the intrinsic limitations of 2D representations and their possible compensations; and the technical issues involved in depiction: e.g. projection, denotation (choice of primitives - lines, points or regions) and tonal conventions. Particular emphasis will also be given to technical aspects of image capture and rendering; merging of different cameras and issues related to extension of the pictorial medium; and an exploration of how such a medium can be used to it maximum potential.  Students are encouraged (not required) to bring their digital cameras and a laptop to undertake experiments with this medium.
