Author:Hop David
Description: David suggests a mapping from half of 3-D space onto a plane, feeling that traditional perspective drawings are similar to the image projected by a pinhole camera. Perspective illustrations of arches, looking up or down at a skyscraper, peripheral vision, and harmonic sequences. David's overarching gallery includes several other studies and drawings about Escher's observations, Moiré patterns, numbers, equations, and more.
