Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
11 – 13 July 2017
Links between optics and representation go back at least to Antiquity. Greco-Roman efforts were linked with scenography (skaenographia). This resulted in a sense of depth usually through convergence along an axis of points (fish-bone perspective) and occasionally towards a central vanishing point. Fictive columns were typically used to close a visual space within a distance of less than 50 meters. Although seemingly realistic, it was linked with imitation: with narratives, rather than with physical reality.
