Discuss their form and content. Do you consider that the use of a perspective framework within which we are able to enhance the realism of 3-D images that are rendered on a 2-D surface always provides us with a natural and intuitive means of creative expression?

14 to produce a view that employs three vanishing points. Over the subsequent years, techniques such as those described by Alberti coupled with an understanding of ways in which shading and colour can be effectively employed ultimately enabled photorealistic renditions of 3-D scenes to be created on the 2-D tableau. By drawing on the techniques that have evolved, the artist can transcend and surpass photorealism – the world created by the artist embracing both imagination and emotion: ‘The artist is responsible for every detail depicted on the canvas – the finished work represents the coalescence of the artist’s ability to accurately observe a 3-D scene and to properly map these observations onto a 2-D space.

18 However, it appears that it was not until 1911 that a reasonably feasible fully electronic television system was proposed. 1) 18 It appears that the term ‘television’ was first publicly used by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Conference (25th August 1900) [Abramson 1987]. 17 In the 1930s television developed rapidly.
