  • How Self-Similar are Artworks at Different Levels of Spatial Resolution? 

    Amirshahi, Seyed Ali; Redies, Christoph; Denzler, Joachim (ACM, 2013)
    Recent research has shown that a large variety of aesthetic paintings are highly self-similar. The degree of self-similarity seen in artworks is close to that observed for complex natural scenes, to which low-level visual ...
  • Virtual Photograph Based Saliency Analysis of High Dynamic Range Images 

    Gao, Xihe; Brooksy, Stephen; Arnold, Dirk V. (ACM, 2013)
    Computational visual attention systems detect regions of interest in images. These systems have a broad range of applications in areas such as computer vision, computational aesthetics, and nonphotorealistic rendering. ...
  • Simple Art as Abstractions of Photographs 

    Hall, Peter; Song, Yi-Zhe (ACM, 2013)
    This paper shows that it is possible to semi-automatically process photographs into Simple Art. Simple Art is a term that we use to refer to a group of artistic styles such a child art, cave art, and Fine Artists as ...
  • Creating Contour Gradients using 3D Bevels 

    Asente, Paul; Carr, Nathan (ACM, 2013)
    Contour gradients have color contours that follow the shape of the path being filled. Existing algorithms cannot create them in a resolution- and scale-independent way, causing visible rendering artifacts if enlarged. We ...
  • Generative Fluid Profiles for Interactive Media Arts Projects 

    Forbes, Angus Graeme; Höllerer, Tobias; Legrady, George (ACM, 2013)
    This paper presents a real-time, interactive fluid simulation and vec- tor visualization technique that can be incorporated in media arts projects. These techniques- referred to collectively as the Fluid Automata system- ...
  • Generating Knitting Patterns from a Sketch: a CSP Approach 

    Kryven, Marta; Fourquet, Elodie (ACM, 2013)
    Graphic patterns in knitting are composed of relatively large pixels and create a picture when seen from a distance, while on close viewing the image falls apart into its constituent stitches. Such patterns are constrained ...
  • Perceiving Complex Causation Through Interaction 

    Ware, Colin (ACM, 2013)
    When we interact with a touch screen computational device we have the strong subjective impression that we are directly causing changes that occur on the screen. For example, sliding a finger on a screen causes scrolling ...
  • The Aesthetics of Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees 

    Burch, Michael; Weiskopf, Daniel (ACM, 2013)
    Rapidly-Exploring Random Trees (RRTs) have been introduced as an algorithmic concept for the rapid exploration of configuration spaces targeting fast path planning, mainly applied in the field of robotics. Typically, such ...
  • Non-Photorealistic Rendering with Spot Colour 

    Rosin, Paul L.; Lai, Yu-Kun (ACM, 2013)
    Colour is an important aspect of art. Not only does it give richness to images, but it always provides a means to highlight certain objects. This idea of spot colour has been used extensively in both fine art and commercial ...
  • Morphable guidelines for the human head 

    Gao, Shelley; Werner, Christopher; Gooch, Amy A. (ACM, 2013)
    We present a system to help users achieve better face warping on 2D portrait images. Faces can be difficult to warp accurately because the rotation of the head affects the shape of the facial features. We bypass this problem ...
  • Real-Time Rendering of Water Surfaces with Cartography-Oriented Design 

    Semmo, Amir; Kyprianidis, Jan Eric; Trapp, Matthias; Döllner, Jürgen (ACM, 2013)
    More than 70 percent of the Earth's surface is covered by oceans, seas, and lakes, making water surfaces one of the primary elements in geospatial visualization. Traditional approaches in computer graphics simulate and ...
  • Patch-Based Geometric Texture Synthesis 

    AlMeraj, Zainab; Kaplan, Craig S.; Asente, Paul (ACM, 2013)
    Inspired by the results of recent studies on the perception of geometric textures, we present a patch-based geometric synthesis algorithm that mimics observed synthesis strategies. Our synthesis process first constructs ...
