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.
