Welcome to our website for M/A/D

Thanks for a great class on Monday, everyone! Here is the least you need to know:

  1. Read the syllabus online, and email me with any questions!
  2. My office is Univ Hall 2-132, and I have office hours Thurs 11-12 and Friday 12:30-1:30, or by appointment.
  3. For next Monday (2/3) you need to bring pictures you’ve done in one-, two-, and three-point perspective. They don’t have to be elaborate, just one or two boxes will do! Experiment with the placement of your vanishing points!
  4. I forgot to remind everyone Monday that this class can “count” as your single math class at Lesley if you are a LUCAD student, but not of you are a CLAS student. CLAS students are more than welcome in the class, but be aware that you will need to have another (non-QR) math course to graduate!

Here’s lots more if you are interested:

  1. Notes projected in class can be found here and the perspective sketches also.
  2. Perspective: great one-minute video on one-, two-, and three-point perspective, Wikipedia article, and Brunelleschi’s experiment
  3. Anamorphic art/illusions: Julian Beever video, his website, video of three anamorphic illusions that you can print out yourself
  4. Ames Room: Video from class, video from previous show (the show is great fun, the ames room comes in near the end), Ames room from Quaker commercial
  5. The 4pm class got to see another great illusion of a T-rex.

Let me know if there’s any more links you want that I forgot!
