Anti-Perspective (DRW4402.02)

Farhad Mirza

In this course, we will read texts that examine images as forms of thought. In particular, we will study the differences between one-point perspective, parallel projection, non-perspectival representation, and the problem of depth in these representational modes. Readings will be paired with short drawing exercises that experiment with different rules about creating space in a picture. Students may work digitally, or on graph paper to explore the various characteristics of drawings that create the illusion of space. Everyone will be expected to maintain a correspondence (in words and images) about all assigned reading with the class.
