Contents
Individual students’ abilities to perceive people and objects are stimulated through exercises in drawing and painting, with particular emphasis on how the three dimensions of such objects and the students’ two-dimensional images of them are related to one another; one of the exercises is in artistically creating things to accord with three dimensional public space. Lectures introduce the exercises by clarifying the fundamental conditions of visual communications.
