UD 714 Public Properties-I
Instructed by Cyrus Peñarroyo
Fall 2018

“Perspective subjects the artistic phenomenon to stable and even mathematically exact rules, but on the other hand, makes that phenomenon contingent upon human beings, indeed upon the individual: for these rules refer to the psychological and physical conditions of the visual impression, and the way they take effect is determined by the freely chosen position of a subjective ‘pointof view.’”
– Erwin Panofsky, “Perspective as Symbolic Form”

The exercise encourages students to use some of the types that they have documented and catalogued during the journey through Queens. At least two of the typologies will be selected and integrated in one perspective-view drawing to explore new and exciting ways of looking at the urban environment.
