    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Flattening the Viewable Sphere 

      German, Daniel M.; Burchill, Lloyd; Duret-Lutz, Alexandre; Pérez-Duarte, Sébastien; Pérez-Duarte, Emmanuel; Sommers, Josh (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      The viewable sphere corresponds to the space that surrounds us. The evolution of photography and panoramic software and hardware has made it possible for anybody to capture the viewable sphere. It is now up to the artist ...
    • Theatre of Restless Automata 

      Isley, Vicky; Smith, Paul (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      Our enthusiasm for scientific modelling techniques and fascination with natural systems has inspired us to develop computational artworks over the last six years that explore the aesthetics of emergence, computational ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • An Information-Theoretic Ambient Occlusion 

      González, Francisco; Sbert, Mateu; Feixas, Miquel (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      Ambient occlusion is a powerful technique that mimics indirect global illumination at a fraction of the cost. In this paper, we introduce a new ambient occlusion technique based on information-theoretic concepts. A viewpoint ...
    • New Methods to Project Panoramas for Practical and Aesthetic Purposes 

      German, Daniel M.; d'Angelo, Pablo; Gross, Michael; Postle, Bruno (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      Recent advances in digital photomontage have simplified the creation of extreme wide-angle views from a vantage point, including the recreation of the entire sphere (we will refer to these type of images as panoramas). In ...
    • 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, ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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, ...
    • 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 ...
    • Spiritual Art: Evoking the Numinous using a 3D Computer Game Engine 

      Nelson, Chris L. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      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 ...
