The location of the selected viewpoint relative to the projection plane. 3. The physical size of each object. It is important to note that a perspective projection of a set of objects in a 3-D space onto a 2-D surface assumes a certain viewing location. Let us now return to that day in the early 15th century when Filippo Brunelleschi is said to have demonstrated his ability to depict a Florentine Baptistery within a geometrically accurate framework. 9. By providing a single hole through which the completed painting was to be viewed, Brunelleschi (deliberately or otherwise) achieved three important goals: 1.

Unfortunately, neither of these paintings appears to have survived – although one of the demonstrations is described in some detail by Brunelleschi’s biographer (Antonio de Manetti) – apparently from first hand knowledge. However, this account leaves a number of questions unanswered and the demonstration given by Brunelleschi has an air of mystery – especially when we consider the technique employed for viewing the completed work. The demonstration described by de Manetti concerns the creation of a painting of a Florentine Baptistery in relation to which he writes: 11 ‘The necessary conditions for viewing were that the spectator should peep from the back of the panel through a small hole at a mirror, in such a way that the painted surface was visible in reflection .

In terms of the terminology used in the last section, the display is said to exhibit ‘transient light output’ (TLO). To generate an image, it is necessary to modulate the beam as it travels across the screen. 25 we illustrate (in a simplified way) the manner in which a rectangle can be produced by turning the electron beam on and off at the appropriate times. The generation of colour images is somewhat more complex and is underpinned by the fact that we can generate any colour within the visible spectrum by mixing together sources of red, green, and blue light in appropriate proportions.
