Perspective projection distortion is the inevitable misrepresentation of three-dimensional space when drawn or "projected" onto a 2-dimensional surface. It is impossible to accurately depict 3D reality on a 2D plane. The main focus of this paper is to research how the new technologies pushed the boundaries of perspective projection distortion in the digital art world. I will explore contemporary artists’ work like William Kentridge’s anamorphic animation, lights and shadows installations by Kumi Yamashita, Felice Varini ‘s optical art, and Amon Tobin’s stage performances. This paper will focus on a few selected artists in order to illuminate noticeable contrasts that have occurred over time in the realm of digital art. To address the various mediums, techniques and methods within this broad subject would be a staggering task. This is why only a few key subjects will be addressed.
One subject will be to analyze how methods of visualization in digital art have evolved, since this aspect is directly responsible for the perception and aesthetic value of the majority of digitally displayed mediums.
We need a new approach to linear perspective that relates it to the more general development of projection methods, and yet something more than that provided by nineteenth century historians of mathematics and science who were searching for the origins of descriptive geometry. It is not just a question of how the laws were discovered. Needed is a history of how these laws became recognized as being independent from Euclidean theories of vision: a history of how laws of projection and theories of vision were and were not applied to the visual arts.
Such a history will need to emphasize that the Renaissance fascination with projection, that included linear perspective and anamorphosis, did not push artists into becoming mechanical copiers of nature. Indeed it led gradually…...

...Perspectives Paper Psychological perspectives have changed as the field of psychology has progressed. There are few perspectives that have core values that have remained steadfast even in today’s pool of theories. John B. Watson, B.F. Skinner, and Edward Tolman, all of these men had theories that remain the foundation for many schools of thought in psychology today. John B. Watson John Watson believed that psychology should be a purely objective science with its sole purpose as the study of observable behavior, prediction, and control. He adamantly thought the removal of introspection and consciousness would promote psychology as an experimental science (White, 2011). Watson believed that introspective studies had not scientific value and observing varied states of consciousness had not place in the true science of psychology. Watson’s greatest challenge was his inability to assimilate psychoanalysis into behaviorism. He was fascinated with Sigmund Freud’s theories and struggled for years to understand some of his processes without success (Goodwin, 2008). His “Little Albert” experiment was an effort to explain psychoanalytic concepts by using classical conditioning (Goodwin, 2008). He believed behavior was purely elicited, and that people did not experience emotions, but emotions were a response to some other stimuli. In his “Little Albert” experiment, Watson conditioned the young child to fear a rat by pairing the rat with a loud disturbing sound (Cherry, n.d.). His...

...INTRODUCTION: PERSPECTIVES ON WORK AND LEARNING IN THE INFORMATION AGE The conditions of work and learning now appear to be changing quickly in Canadian society. A basic assumption underlying much of the recent public discussion about work and learning is that because new jobs are rapidly requiring greater knowledge and skill, a lifelong learning culture must be created in order for Canada and Canadians to succeed in an increasingly information-based world. Virtually every recent public policy statement begins with this assumption. Consider the following examples: Information technology is changing our world. It is reshaping our economy and affecting the life and work of almost every Canadian....If Canadians are to embrace and welcome change, they must create a society that places learning at its very heart, and nourishes them in their personal and working lives. (Information Highway Advisory Council, 1995, pp. vii, 57). Canada’s workplaces are changing with unnerving rapidity, and since the world of work casts a long shadow on the rest of life, many Canadians are anxious about the future....As long as Canada maintains its investments in educating the new generation of workers and enhancing the skills of older workers, the long-term outlook for the productive potential of the Canadian economy is very positive. (Advisory Committee on the Changing Workplace, 1997, pp. 5-6) Technology is altering every aspect of our lives. Knowledge and creativity are now the......

Another Update divergent thinking. A typical kind of question would be: how many uses can you think of for a paper clip? He says an average person might think of ten to fifteen. Someone who is really good at it might think of two hundred. In the test if you scored above a certain level you would be considered a genius at divergent thinking. An important thing to know about the people tested is that they were all in kindergarten. The percentage of these children that scored at genius level was ninety eight percent. The same children were tested again in five years and the percentage went down to about fifty. They were tested again Rummler 4 five years after that and it went down significantly again. They continued with the same testing after another five years and the decreasing trend in results continued. ( Most would expect that we get better as we get older. We become more “educated” and experienced and better able to do “things” or in other words, be successful. This study illustrates a very interesting idea. We all start out with something of a genius-level ability to solve problems and as we become more and more educated we loose this ability for whatever reason. The crazy thing is that the world really would like us to hang on to that valuable ability but at the same time prominent hegemony does not support the kinds of systems that best foster it. The public education system is not structured to allow for much creativity. When asked if creativity should......

...Perspectives Life Span & Introduction to Sociology PSYC-2314-S03 In class we have been discussing the analogy of perspectives. A perspective is a way of seeing, also thought of as a ‘point of view’. This mental view or outlook can both enhance and constrain how we view the world in our own eyes. In the field of psychology and sociology there are many ways to perceive our world in which we live. No one perspective alone can define the world. Each perspective has its own distinctive strengths and blind spots. In class we have discussed different theories and analogies to better understand the complexity of perspectives. Perspectives will both facilitate and constrain perception. A good example of this statement is the Burke Theorem. The Burke Theorem states that “A way of seeing is also a way of not seeing- a focus upon object A involves a neglect of object B”. My understanding of this theory is that if you only focus on one perspective for viewing, you end up neglecting other perspectives, which doesn’t allow you to fully see reality as you could from looking with more than one perspective. An example given in class was how each student viewed the same exact water bottle. Students sitting on different sides or directly in front of the water bottle will have different views. Students sitting in rows towards the left and right sides of the classroom saw the sides of the bottle, while students sitting directly in front saw the front of the bottle. And on the other......

Perspectives used Perspectives Paper Psychology as we know is the study of the mind and human behavior. Since earlier years, there has been research performed to find out how individuals think, feel, and act. There are many different perspectives that psychologists use as a means of studying human behavior and how individuals think and feel. One of those perspectives is known as the Behavioral Perspective. The main focus of this perspective is behaviors that are learned. The difference between behaviorism and other perspectives is that its emphasis is placed on behaviors that can be observed, not on internal states (Cherry, 2014). There are many major thinkers that made contributions to the Behavioral Perspective, and their theories have been valuable, and serve as a basis for the schools of thought in modern psychology. In this paper, I will be comparing and contrasting the Behavioral Perspectives of John B. Watson and B. F. Skinner, with the perspectives of another major thinker known as Edward C. Tolman. The main focus of John B. Watson and of B. F. Skinner was behaviorism while Edward C. Tolman’s focus was Cognitive Behaviorism (Cherry, 2014). John B. Watson’s Perspectives John B. Watson was a major thinker and also a psychologist who was later known as the father of behaviorism. During part of the 20th Century, he dominated with his perspective of behavior. Watson’s theory of psychology was that it was based on......

...From the theoretical point of view, I believe nurse’s assessment of family is very important.  In order to understand the health-related conditions of a person, one must first acquire detailed information of the family. We must look at families not only as a group but also the way members interact with one another (Ward& Hisley, 2009). Nurses develop broad understanding of the surroundings and family structures with visitation and their thorough evaluation of these families help foster the basics of health development (Kaakinen et al., 2010; Lundy& Janes, 2010; Ward& Hisley, 2009).This is the family theory assessment that I believe is the most significant among other theories.      A family is considered a system made of individual entities.  An associated problem with one means problem for all. Families are bonded in many ways such as religion, culture, education and modes of education and development. In this regard, perception and knowledge of each individual that makes a part of the family is very important in our assessment goals.        However, it must be borne in mind that family assessment can also be influenced by genetic/familial factors. We can understand these underlying problems if any by engaging in discussions , listening and pay attention to certain patterns that may be observed in the family(Kaakinen et al., 2010; Lundy& Janes, 2010; Ward& Hisley, 2009).      In conclusion, knowledge of the composition and familial pattern of a family......

...clearing as Pia turned left and started to speed along Ball’s Pond Road, escaping Dalston and entering the leafier groves of Canonbury. The scientist being interviewed had a gentle Swiss tilt to his flawless English. “What we are proposing is that the neutrinos might have travelled through a fourth – thus far unobserved – dimension of space. Imagine,” Pia pulled up sharply against the suddenly still traffic, “that this fourth dimension is flat, but quantum fluctuations have made it ripple, like the surface of the sea. Just as flying fish may take a shortcut against the current by skipping along the crests of the waves, this is what the neutrinos might be doing – freeing themselves of the dense matter below and flying quicker through another matter altogether: a fourth dimension.” Pia thought the metaphor quite lovely: she imagined the neutrino flying with all the grace of the flying fish, breaking from the saltwater and soaring through the air, its silverflecked tail flashing in the light, its white belly hitting the next wave with a slap. Enlivened by the metaphor, and flying into the slipstream of the bus lane, Pia went faster than she should, surfing the crests of each car, freed from the traffic to her side. Without any warning a large truck, nose-heavy without its container, suddenly pulled out directly in front of her. Pia slammed the brakes and swerved. Her head and body sprang forward from the seat, travelling hard through time and space though the car......

...Another Me Cloning. Kind of cool? Kind of scary? Most things in life are. There's always been the thoughts of 'what-if-there's-another-me' throughout history. Well, what else is there to say but that cloning is already here? Many people are familiar with the story of 'Dolly' the cloned Finn Dorset sheep born from a Scottish Blackface mother; but are perhaps unaware that the process has been tried on multiple other animals. The most recent miracle occurring in Japan that resulted in a mouse being cloned from nothing but a drop of blood (2013, June 28). It doesn't stop there though. There are studies and experiments being done in cloning stem cells, blood and even organs; it's a very wide field to dive into. So, pop quiz here. What blood type is in high demand and very low in supply? All of them! Despite all of the medical advances the world needs so much more help with supply and demand. Now, what if one single blood cell could be taken and cloning could provide an unlimited amount of blood for any required transfusions? No need for donors, no risk of getting the wrong blood type. This may be closer than anyone thinks as red blood cells have already been produced by scientists at Advanced Cell Technology in Worcester, Massachusetts, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota from stem cells (2008, August 19). They reported that the cloned blood cells acted just like natural blood cells and there's possibility of producing them on a...

...* Summery: The short story “ Another Language “ by Craig Cliff, starts with an introduction of the main character, a seven-year-old boy named James. He is living in New Zealand with his Mother, Father and his brother Daniel. Every Saturday James is visiting his grandparent, Baba and Dedo. James decides to find out why Dedo always is sad and quiet. When he asks his grandfather, James is introduced to the expression ‘stuttering’. Dedo tells James, that he stutters when he speaks the language Serbian, and that’s the reason for his move to New Zealand. James finds his grandfathers words unreliable; therefore he investigates the matter by himself, by hanging out with Marcus Collins. - The only associate James knows with stuttering-problems. At a visit in the grandparents’ house, James tells his grandfather about Marcus and the stuttering that only appears when he talks. Dedo seemed uninterested, which is frustrating for James. When James talks with his father about the problem, he finds out the Dedo used the stuttering, as an excused for not talking about his past. * Characterization James is a bright seven-year-old boy. He has a cheerfully and delighted personality, especially towards his family. He has a burning desire for his grandfather, Dedo, James wants him to be like his other grandfather, who is telling stories: (pg. 9, l. 63) “I desperately wanted him to tell me a story like my other grandfather, my mum’s dad, but Dad’s dad never seemed interested in stories. ...

Gerard is a handsome man from New York, who is approximately 40 years old. The turning point in the story is when Gerard meets Laurel coincidently after he sees her through a shop window. Gerard and Laurel are former partners, but the relationship ended when Gerard had to proclaim that he had made another woman pregnant while they were still dating. Gerard has Lucy with Issy, and after Issy moves to Los Angeles to fulfill her dreams about being a Hollywood actress, Gerard takes the responsibility of raising Lucy on his own. Four years after Issy went to Los Angeles she was found dead in a pool, possibly after a suicide as she had taken her time to write Gerard’s name as her next of kin. Gerard lives what could be conceived as a boring and regrettable life, with the exception of his daughter; Lucy. Lucy is Gerard’s light of the day. “Gerard feels a stabbing love for his daughter” [l.18], “She’s wonderful, just wonderful” [l.78], “I love you” [l.165]; in this short story we’re constantly reminded of Gerard’s endless love for his daughter, and it is clear that she is the light of his seemingly else uninteresting life. We, as readers, are never told which profession Gerard is in, nothing about his parents or childhood so none of it must important or interesting. Another reason that one can......

In the meantime, someone sent me a beautiful and haunting poem. Enjoy. Another Christmas, Another year ending; A year of pain and loss and bewilderment, Of beauty and fear, With a little love to make us go on struggling, A little joy to make it worth the struggle. Another Christmas, Another dream over. Do we dare to remember last year And the years before? So much is gone, so many memories, How can we stop what remains from becoming a shadow? Another Christmas, Another pause in the fighting. Can the pain that we give to others And the pain that we cause for ourselves Really be laid to rest by a Christmas card Or a sprig of mistletoe? Are we not as afraid of dying on Christmas Day? Another Christmas, Another pause for reflection: The morning I walked out alone in the cold golden sunlight, The evening I loved as was loved amid laughter and music, The afternoon of firelight and peace with my dream-shapes about me. Another Christmas, Another year beginning. Perhaps this year will see the end of us, Perhaps an indifferent stab will finally sever the tightrope on which we struggle.
