  • Perceptual and Computational Categories in Art 

    Wallraven, Christian; Cunningham, Douglas W.; Fleming, Roland (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    The categorization of art (paintings, literature) into distinct styles such as expressionism, or surrealism has had a profound influence on how art is presented, marketed, analyzed, and historicized. Here, we present results ...

  • Pictorial Analysis of Line-drawings 

    Hurtut, Thomas; Gousseau, Yann; Cheriet, Farida; Schmitt, Francis (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    We present in this paper an approach to the analysis of the pictorial content of artistic line-drawings. The pictorial content is the combination of the stylistic content and of the visual features of the represented ...
  • Informational Dialogue with Van Gogh's Paintings 

    Rigau, Jaume; Feixas, Miquel; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    From the pioneering work by Birkhoff, several measures have been proposed to quantify the aesthetic content of art. After Bense's application of information theory to Birkhoff's ideas, the concept of informational aesthetics ...
  • Improving Scans of Black and White photographs by Recovering the Print Maker's Artistic Intent 

    German, Daniel M. (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In this paper we propose a method that reverse engineers the aesthetic decisions made by a print maker to produce a print from a negative, namely cropping, contrast selection, and dodging-and-burning. It then re-applies ...
  • Regularity and Randomness in Bridget Riley's Aarly Op Art 

    Dodgson, Neil A. (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    I investigate the trade-off between regularity and randomness in Bridget Riley's early Op art, focusing on White Discs 2 (1964) and Fragment 6/9 (1965). I build on this to investigate the trade-off more generally. I analyse ...
  • Modeling and Synthesis of Aperture Effects in Cameras 

    Lanman, Douglas; Raskar, Ramesh; Taubin, Gabriel (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In this paper we describe the capture, analysis, and synthesis of optical vignetting in conventional cameras. We analyze the spatially-varying point spread function (PSF) to accurately model the vignetting for any given ...
  • Applications of High Precision Imaging Polarimetry 

    Neumann, Laszlo; Hegedus, Ramon; Horváth, Gábor; Garcia, Rafael (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    We propose the use of imaging polarimetry for general photography, which is a relatively young technique allowing the determination of polarized components of the light coming from extended objects or scenes. In this paper ...
  • Mimicking Hand-Drawn Pencil Lines 

    Meraj, Zainab; Wyvill, Brian; Isenberg, Tobias; Gooch, Amy A.; Guy, Richard (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In applications such as architecture, early design sketches often mislead the target audience [SSRL96]. Approximate human-drawn sketches are typically accepted as a better way of demonstrating fundamental design concepts. ...
  • Arty Shapes 

    Song, Yi-Zhe; Rosin, Paul L.; Hall, Peter M.; Collomosse, John (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    This paper shows that shape simplification is a tool useful in Non-Photorealistic rendering from photographs, because it permits a level of abstraction otherwise unreachable. A variety of simple shapes (e.g. circles, ...
  • The Aesthetics of the Underworld 

    Boukhelifa, Nadia; Duke, David J. (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Although the development of computational aesthetics has largely concentrated on 3D geometry and illustrative rendering, aesthetics are equally an important principle underlying 2D graphics and information visualization. ...
  • Expressive Trajectories 

    Velho, Luiz; Martins, Julio; Bodanzky, Alice; Paterman, Ilana; Cordeiro, Analivia (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    This paper presents Expressive Trajectories, a project for Interactive Digital Art and Contemporary Dance. The project has two main components: X-Motion, a real-time interactive system for live performances; and Choreographisms, ...
  • Watercolor Illustrations of CAD Data 

    Luft, Thomas; Kobs, Frank; Zinser, Walter; Deussen, Oliver (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In this paper we describe a project that integrates a non-photorealistic rendering pipeline into an existing CAD system. The pipeline enables the customers of the CAD company to create aesthetically appealing renderings ...
  • Seamless Integration of Labels into Interactive Virtual 3D Environments Using Parameterized Hulls 

    Maass, Stefan; Döllner, Jürgen (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    This paper presents an approach for the automated, dynamic placement of labels attached to objects of 3D scenes. These labels are seamlessly integrated into the 3D scene by textured polygons aligned to parameterized hulls, ...
  • Animating Persian Floral Patterns 

    Etemad, Katayoon; Samavati, Faramarz F.; Prusinkiewicz, Przemyslaw (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    In this paper we describe Persian floral patterns and explore techniques for animating them. We present several approaches for this dynamic recreation: visualizing pattern symmetries, illustrating their design process, and ...
  • Composition in Perspectives 

    Fourquet, Elodie (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Composition is a key element of image aesthetics. However composition is hard to control when working in three dimensions to create a two dimensional image. A framework that derives perspective from a planar pattern is ...
  • Fast Visualisation and Interactive Design of Deterministic Fractals 

    Banisch, Sven; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    This paper describes an interactive software tool for the visualisation and the design of artistic fractal images. The software (called AttractOrAnalyst) implements a fast algorithm for the visualisation of basins of ...
  • Inadvertent - Ars Accidentalis 

    Germen, Murat (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
    Even though art is the product of an intentional act of fabrication, the serendipitous spill of an ink or paint, the unforeseen slip of a pen or brush, sudden shake of a camera in the analog realm have the potential of ...
