Representation and Illusion
Lecture no. 5 from the course: Visual Literacy Skills: How to See
Taught by Professor Carrie Patterson | 21 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
How do we define what is real? To begin to answer that question, look into representation in art, and how we value artists’ ability to create the illusion of form and dimension. Observe how photography alters our experience of the world, and how we tend to view photos as “truth.” Grasp the ways in which, in both photography and art, images are “constructed,” and how fact and fiction can overlap.
