ps2a::fireflies,house,stars,radiotower in fifty points of light
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.
ps3c::view of an egg in three space
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.
ps4b::shifting striation fault in bw
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.
ps7b::dither but I
Create a generally smooth gradation of white to black, from left to right using only a 100 percent black pen.
ps8a::seven lines, novels
Display the name of your main theme from class using dbnletters.dbn. At the top of the code list your 10 keyverbs/keyadjectives. Note that many used nouns even though they were instructed not to -- remove all nouns and replace with verb/adjectives.
ps9a::a shadow of previous work
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.
