This paper reports on a transdisciplinary undergraduate university course designed to bring together fine art/visual communication design and computer science students for the creation and implementation of collaborative visual/audial projects that draw upon the specialised knowledge of both these disciplines. While an overview of syllabus and teaching(More)
Maestro - 3D group calendar visualizer aims at handling multiple schedules and highlighting common free times. One of the most powerful skills of Maestro is scalability according to the number of group members, which can be up to 18 users. The use of color and shape intends to create a more lucid picture of an organizationpsilas schedule, as opposed to(More)

Visualization techniques for geographic data show vast variations which are well-developed over centuries. While most of the known techniques are sound for low dimensional data sets, few techniques exist for visualization of high dimensional data within the geographic framework. This thesis investigates visualization of temporal, high dimensional network(More)
This paper describes the creative as well as computational processes involved in the creation of a generative architectural construct destined to become the virtual campus of a Real Life University in Second Life®. Designed around a core spiral structure the virtual building re-configures itself based upon user demand, adding exhibition and meeting areas as(More)
This study concerns the development of 3D interfaces that aid the navigation of large data structures through the usage of the HSV color space, and the ensuing " spatial frames ". While data objects that have been colorized in various hues that carry equal saturation and brightness/transparency value seem to be equally fore grounded; varying saturation,(More)
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 generating an unconscious lead in the planned course of action. The consequential shift in direction may completely change the aesthetics(More)
Artist Statement " It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it. " — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe With the traditional photographic documentation process, you can only capture one single condition of a particular place. But(More)
Though Ottoman miniatures are 2D representations, they carry the potential of conveying an individual's perception in a more detailed manner as compared to 3D perspective renderings. In a typical 2-vanishing-point perspective; objects / subjects drawn in the foreground hide the ones that are located at their back: This phenomenon is called occlusion. In(More)
