1. the art of representing three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other
“the theory and practice of perspective”
2. a particular attitude towards or way of regarding something; a point of view.
In our little class exercise I tried to explore the idea of breaking perspectives, changing the way we see things.
Firstly we tried a little experiment with a pen and depth .
We are able to see in perspective because we use two eyes that compare depth of the images. As we were looking through the camera, i found it interesting that my mind doesn’t register depth because unlike our eyes, the camera only shows one image.

While looking through the camera, it became confusing because my mind could not register the space as well as it did, hence drawing on the paper was a little more confusing.
It also became harder to draw because our minds did not register the depth of field and the spatial structure of things were different inside the screen.
