Assignment #1 - perspective

Due Thursday, January 22 (in class)

CS 99D - The Science of Art
Winter Quarter, 1998
Marc Levoy
Handout #4

Your first assignment is to write a 3-4 page double-spaced paper on one of the topics listed in the first three sections below. Alternatively, you may do one of the projects listed in the last section. However, if you do a project for this assignment, you must write a paper for the next one. (I envision giving 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 #2), even for topics in the first section. In addition to the items on reserve in the library, I have copies of each of these books, which I might be willing to lend out. I am also 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 (among those who choose to write papers) 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.
