Assignment #1 - perspective

Due Tuesday, January 26 (in class)

CS 99D - The Science of Art
Winter Quarter, 1999
Marc Levoy
Handout #5

Your first assignment is to write a 3-4 page double-spaced paper on one of the topics listed in the first section below. Alternatively, you may do one of the projects listed in the second section. However, if you do a project for this assignment, you must write a paper for the next one. (I will give you a similar set of choices for the next two assignments.) You may also choose another topic if you clear it with me in advance.

Papers must be typed or printed, not handwritten. They will be graded on effort, content, and style. In writing your paper, I encourage you to make use of the books listed in the course bibliography (handout #3). I have copies of each of these books, which I am willing to lend out. I also encourage you to make use of the Stanford Center library, which has an excellent collection of art history books. Finally, I am happy to meet with you, during office hours or by appointment, to discuss your paper and to offer suggestions for additional readings.

In addition to the written assignment, a few of you will be asked to briefly present your ideas in class on the due date. Your presentation is not intended to be a reading of your paper, but a proper talk. In other words, it should be lively and should engage the class in discussion.
