Surely one of the singular achievements of Renaissance and post-Renaissance Western art and technology was the conquest, articulation, and deployment of notions of visual perspective. How has perspective continued to evolve?
Panelists Jonathan Crary, Ryan Oakes, and Trevor Oakes discuss the idea of perspective and the multiple ways of viewing the physical world. They explain perspective in artworks, both recent and historical, as well as a new way of drawing. Lawrence Weschler moderates.
