Weeks 9-10 due dates

While there is a lot still to make sense of, we have some genuine progress made, and I think a strong commitment to those ideas will help us continue to make progress. In class we’ll be working on establishing and vetting our foothold ideas – particularly with respect to what the filter does and – later? – examining if inks do the same thing.

  1. As always, be working to make sense of color! Now using our foothold ideas – play with those and see if they hold up and what questions arise.
  2. We’re going to read what Isaac Newton had to say about some of these ideas — his original writing is in Perusall for week 10. What does he say about yellow + blue makes green? How does he describe white light? What happens if you pass one rainbow color through a second prism?

And, as always, be keeping track in your notebook; including notes, thoughts, etc. from class on Tuesday.
