a structured approach to seeing (exploring with logo)
SBN-13: 978-0262530699 ISBN-10: 9780262530699
Filled with striking illustrations, this book offers an exciting exploration of Logo graphics for designers, architects, liberal arts students, and other individuals who are interested in creative applications of computers.
Visual Modeling with Logo introduces the programming concepts necessary for describing and manipulating some of the basic visual structures in the world around us. Logo is a language that encourages visual problem-solving and helps us expand our understanding of how we see.
The book provides a wide range of exercises for investigating the many dimensions and component parts of seeing; it proceeds from the simple to the complex, using representative models based on circular grids, rectangular grids, Islamic designs, organic forms, and different spatial systems.
James Clayson is an Associate Professor at the American College in Paris. He wrote Visual Modeling with Logo for a course he created at the Parsons School of Design, Paris. It is included in the series Explorations in Logo, edited by E. Paul Goldenberg.
