Using the dot drawing technique described in Chapter 8 of the DBN book, manually position *exactly* 50 dots on your page that look as though they are randomly placed, but still form a cohesive recognizable image that is non-typographic and non-symbolic.
In Primer of Visual Literacy (DD) read pp. 0-37. Using DBN, create a perceptual glitch, i.e. a visual illusion. Your illusion should be constructed by reusing at least 1 similar part via use of the 'command' command in Chapter 12 of the DBN book.
In Passages in Modern Sculpture (RK) read pp. 0-67. Using DBN, create an image in the cubist spirit of "The Guitar" (p. 51). You should use at least 5 'command' definitions.

Visualize a geometric progression (GP) of your choice in a concrete manner that emphasizes the wide range of scales inherent to a GP. This is a simple exercise in Cartesian geometry that can look as mathy as you like, or not.
Read DD pp. 38 to 66. Using the basic element of the Line and Dot, construct an image that is evocative of the intent and spirit of a Line. Define this drawing as a single Command 'MyLine' that you invoke just once.
Read RK pp. 67 to 102. Evoke the image of an 'egg' shape: smooth, round, yet not entirely symmetrical, using all the DBN knowledge you might have at your disposal. Think closely about how the surface of the egg should be textured and decorated. Establish a clear underlying concept of computation, which will be demonstrated by your cleanliness of code.
Read RK pp. 105 to 146. Reinterpret one of your previous pieces as a surrealist image. Include the name of the previous assignment in your comments.

Read RK pp. 147 to 200. Gather visual elements from at least three of your previous assignments, and create a 'welded image'. Each of the visual elements should be in a separate Command (or multiple Commands). Include comments to explain your choices and the resulting composition.
Using real sinusoidals, generate a shape with primarily convex properties.
Your display is now 200 by 200. Emphasize the difference between your early 100 by 100 display area and the now larger 200 by 200 display area with a statically motivated graphic.
