Stella Yu : Art and Vision

Visual expression relies on keen visual perception.

Michael Mulhern and I bring neuroscience, psychology, computer science, visual art, scientific imaging and visualization together in examining how we perceive light, color, motion, shape, material, depth and distance. Students learn basic drawing skills along with rudimentary intuitions in computation and programming. Emphasis is placed on appreciating how artistic rendering contributes to the understanding of inner workings of visual sense, and how effective visual communication can be achieved through more knowledge on visual perception.
