About this course
This advanced graduate seminar explores visual theory as it pertains to and was developed for pictorial representation and three-dimensional space. The format consists of a discussion of prepared texts on vision, perspective, perception, semiotics, mimesis, framing, and the cultural and/or physiological basis for vision. These are difficult texts but fundamental to understanding theories of vision and how our eyes perceive and our minds understand the space that is the visual field.
Prerequisite: Doctoral seminar; master's level students must receive permission from instructor.
