    The Seven Valleys is an interactive 3D installation based artwork inspired by mystical writings of the Bahá'í Faith. Created as a modification of the first-person shooter Unreal Tournament 2003 it subverts the original ...
  • The Bridge Project 

    Ayiter, Elif (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The aim of this project is to visually demonstrate a personal understanding of the evolution of the computer generated "image work" [Mat77], by means of a free associative process that utilises the search and query mechanisms ...
  • A Poetics of Simulation for Audiovisual Performance 

    Jones, Randy (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Audiovisual performance is a fertile area for creative expression, an intersection of experimental cinema and computer music that has seen a groundswell of interest in recent years. To create works in this emerging medium, ...
  • ColorScheme 

    Rotsztain, Jeremy (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Composed of colors sampled from Hollywood cinema, ColorScheme is a moving spectral painting that reveals how color is used in film to support the themes and mood of the narrative and to subconsciously encourage emotional ...
  • A Case Study from the Point of View of Aesthetics: A Dialogue Between an Artist and a Computer Scientist 

    Stamp, Arlene; Isenberg, Tobias; Carpendale, Sheelagh (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Computational Aesthetics draws from both a long history of artistic expression and the possibilities that computational methods can provide. As such, its success depends on a dialogue between the arts world and computer ...
  • memory [en]code Building a Collective Memory within a Tabletop Installation 

    Schmidt, Holly; Hinrichs, Uta; Dunning, Alan; Carpendale, Sheelagh (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    In this paper, we introduce memory [en]code, a project that evolved through an art+science collaboration. memory [en]code is an interactive tabletop installation that visualizes different concepts of human memory in an ...
  • Individual Realities: Customizing Aesthetics in Shared Immersive Virtual Environments 

    Sprague, David. W.; Gooch, Amy A. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Immersive virtual reality systems such as CAVEs and head-mounted displays offer a unique shared environment for collaborations unavailable in the real world. Virtual environments not only provide users with novel interaction ...
  • In the Eye of the Beholder - Perception of Indeterminate Art 

    Wallraven, Christian; Kaulard, Kathrin; Kürner, Cora; Pepperell, Robert; Bülthoff, Heinrich (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    How do we interpret an object - a scene - a painting? Perception research and art illuminate from different angles how the vast amount of information in our visually perceived environment is processed by the viewer to form ...
  • Conceptualizing Birkhoff's Aesthetic Measure Using Shannon Entropy and Kolmogorov Complexity 

    Rigau, Jaume; Feixas, Miquel; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    In 1928, George D. Birkhoff introduced the Aesthetic Measure, defined as the ratio between order and complexity, and, in 1965, Max Bense analyzed Birkhoff s measure from an information theory point of view. In this paper, ...
  • Extracting the Essence from Sets of Images 

    Alexa, Marc (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    We use a set of photographs showing similar scenes as a model for a single photograph this scene. A distance measure for this model is defined by correlating the neigborhoods of pixels in similar positions. A cross analysis ...
  • Perceptual Reparameterization of Material Properties 

    Cunningham, Douglas W.; Wallraven, Christian; Fleming, Roland W.; Straßer, Wolfgang (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The recent increase in both the range and the subtlety of computer graphics techniques has greatly expanded the possibilities for synthesizing images. In many cases, however, the relationship between the parameters of an ...
  • An Efficient Perception-based Adaptive Color to Gray Transformation 

    Neumann, Laszlo; Cadik, Martin; Nemcsics, Antal (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The visualization of color images in gray scale has high practical and theoretical importance. Neither the existing local, gradient based methods, nor the fast global techniques give a satisfying result. We present a new ...
  • Liquid Penetration Modeling for Cloth Dyeing 

    Morimoto, Yuki; Tsuruno, Reiji; Tomimatsu, Kiyoshi (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    This paper presents a model of cloth dyeing using the characteristics of the thread and weave pattern. The proposed dyeing model is based on Fick s second law that defines the molecular transfer under translational diffusion ...
  • Magnetism and Minimal Surfaces -- a Different Tool for Surface Design 

    Gruber, Franz; Glaeser, Georg (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The design of free form surfaces is usually based on NURBS and it works well to quickly get shapes that a designer intends to create. Such surfaces then have desired properties like given border lines and C1 or C2 continuity ...
  • The Aesthetics of Graph Visualization 

    Bennett, Chris; Ryall, Jody; Spalteholz, Leo; Gooch, Amy (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The discipline of graph visualization produces pictorial representations of node link structures. Much effort has been directed toward making such diagrams visually pleasing. A variety of aesthetic heuristics have been ...
  • Celtic Knots Colorization based on Color Harmony Principles 

    Larboulette, Caroline (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    This paper proposes two simple and powerful algorithms to automatically paint Celtic knots with aesthetic colors. The shape of the knot is generated from its dual graph as presented in [KC03]. The first technique uses rules ...
  • Aesthetics of Hand-Drawn vs. Computer-Generated Stippling 

    Maciejewski, Ross; Isenberg, Tobias; Andrews, William M.; Ebert, David S.; Sousa, Mario Costa (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Recent work in non-photorealistic rendering has produced results comparable to hand-drawn artistic images. Inspiration for such techniques has come from many traditional artistic techniques, such as pen-and-ink, to depict ...
  • Composition Principles for Quality Depiction and Aesthetics 

    Rivotti, Vera; Proença, João; Jorge, Joaquim; Sousa, Mário Costa (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Composition is an important aspect of both traditional illustration practices and non-photorealistic rendering methods. Composition means combining drawing elements such as line, tone, texture, focus of attention and ...
  • Stipple Placement using Distance in a Weighted Graph 

    Mould, David (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    We present a stipple placement method which provides extra emphasis to image features, especially edges. Our algorithm transforms an image into a regular graph, with edge weights given by the local gradient magnitude of ...
