The purpose of the panel is to discuss the questions which have bothered me for a long time: whether we are able to use the computer to its fullest artistic potential. How can we train computer graphics oriented students to utilize both programming and art related issues and make decisions to apply the best approach.This way of training helps young computer(More)
This article explores the landscape of creative endeavors in the new media art and reflects on aesthetics of information visualization. When using computer based information visualization to show data interactively in many dimensions, the user can navigate across big data sets, find patterns, relationships, and structures that would be invisible if(More)
This paper describes the integrative, cooperative instruction in web design that applies art in technical instruction (programming). Students work in an interdisciplinary style drawing upon concepts from programming, web design, computer graphics, art, and design, both in the form of interdisciplinary studies and in a web construction and design class.(More)
In my work, I use the computer on different levels. For my twodimensional works, I wrote programs in Fortran IV, then Fortran 77, using Cyber then VAX mainframes, and the Interactive Graphic Library (IGL). I use it to set color combinations, transform light intensity, and apply grid patterns and moirØ effects to compose the works. The two-dimensional(More)
The Massive Collaborative Animation Project is a multi-year, multi-school, global animation production currently entering its second year of production. Initiated in the summer of 2016 at the annual SIGGRAPH conference in Anaheim, CA, by Dr. William Joel (Western Connecticut State University), the purpose of MCAP is to allow undergraduate students and(More)

Aesthetic evaluation of computer generated patterns is a growing filed with several challenges. This paper focuses on the quantitative evaluation of order and complexity in multi-state two-dimensional (2D) cellular automata (CA). CA are known for their ability to generate highly complex patterns through simple and well defined local interaction of rules. It(More)
My task is to juxtapose the regularity of nature with human constructions, both physical and intellectual. The big city, for example, combines how humans affect their environment and how a city metaphor reflects rhythm and organization of big datasets, and makes data mining easier. Observers – whether artists or technology experts – perceive such(More)
Selected themes presented in this article were presented at the 16th International Conference on Information Visualization (IV 2012) and the Computer Graphics, Imaging, and Visualization Conference (CGIV 2012), which gather artists, scientists, mathematicians, and other participants using digital imagery and data or involved in visual storytelling, art, and(More)
