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.Parabolic Scale
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.Free-Dimensional
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.Abstract Egg
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.Where the Horizon Meets the Highway
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.Contrasting Shapes
Read DD pp. 67 to 103. Create a dynamic composition of two contrasting elements (i.e. color,
shape quality, movement, etc.) Use comments to explain what you're contrasting.The Drill
Using real sinusoidals, generate a shape with primarily convex properties.
