there are 26 combinations of ways you can define objects
; require a specific vantage point
-An accidental view of curved edges can produce the perception of an Impossible Cube or Triangle.
- parallel lines and vertices,
implicit knowledge of environment regularities
facilitates viewpoint-invariant recognition; are properties of an image such as
seldom occur by accident
within optical projections. Thus, if lines in an image are parallel (or co-terminate), they will be interpreted perceptually as if they are parallel (or co-terminating) in the 3Denvironment.5.
What is the depth cue on which it was based?(
) -convergence on a vanishing point-In 1413, Brunelleschi painted a picture of a baptistery on some silver. He drilled a hole into thepainting and
held up a mirror
, and the Italians he did this to couldn’t tell the difference between
the real building and the painted building through the pinhole.
-In 1417, he drew a church exactly before it was made that way.-Depth cue he exploited
was linear perspective
- idea being: there is a vanishing point where allthe parallel lines meet up and in infinity they go to zero.6.
What is anamorphic art? Give three examples
: a distorted projection or perspective; especially an image distorted insuch a way that it
becomes visible only when viewed in a special manner
. "Ana - morphosis" are Greek words meaning "formed again."- Examples:o Orosz- mirror cylinder on top of finger painting.o Julian Beever-
chalk art (nonaccidental alignments).
o Varlini- yellow square on picture (continuous contours).7.
How, in principle, could the visual system use
to deduce the relative distancesof objects from the viewer?
