Our present technology allows us to transmit and display information through a variety of media. To make the most of these media channels, it is important to consider the limitations and abilities of the human observer. The course considers a number of applied aspects of human perception with an emphasis on the display of visual information. Topics include “three-dimensional” display systems, color theory, spatial and temporal limitations of the visual systems, attempts at subliminal communication, and “visual” effects in film and television.
