Transcript of 3.04 Perception
Choose an appropriate painting by a notable artist representing at least three uses of monocular cues. In a structured paragraph, slide presentation, or other Web 2.0 tool, describe how the artist uses the specific monocular cues to represent depth in the painting. Properly cite your reference painting with artist's name, title of the painting, year of painting's creation, and retrieval site.
The Persistence of Memory (1931)
Artist: Salvador Dali
Retrieval Site: http://www.virtualdali.com/31PersistenceOfMemory.html
The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali incorporates interposition, relative size, and relative brightness. The background shows relative size by drawing the cliff smaller than the objects in the foreground, such as the melting clocks. The interposition allows the viewer to know that the tree branch with the melting clock is closer than the eye lying on the floor with a melting clock draping on it as well. Since the sun is setting behind the cliff, objects close to the cliff such as the ocean is relatively brighter than the objects closer to the observer. This allows us to know that the cliff and the table and melting clocks are distant from each other and the cliff is farther than the other objects.
Choose a separate appropriate painting by a notable artist representing at least two Gestalt principles of organization.
In a structured paragraph, slide presentation, or other Web 2.0 tool, describe how the artist uses the Gestalt principles in the painting.
Properly cite your reference painting with artist's name, title of the painting, year of painting's creation, and retrieval site.
Gertrude Ederle, America's Girl
By: Murray Tinkelman (1990-1950)
Gertrude Ederle, America's Girl by Murray Tinkelmen uses symmetry and closure in her painting. The two lamps, if there wasn't a lady in the middle, would express symmetry since they are veritcally aligned no matter how far apart they are. This painting also expresses closure because the observer sees her arm connecting to her neck with a black dress covering her "shoulders".
