Undergraduate Seminar in the Digital Humanities: Sound & Vision in the Built Environment
This course will consider how human beings engineer perceptual experiences. We will explore the relationship between architecture, acoustics, and illumination in a series of case studies. We will pay close attention to the pictures situated in these environments. Do they anticipate acoustic or optical variance? Do they transform under certain lighting conditions, or from particular standpoints?
As part of their research project, students will learn to model these spaces with software.
