We introduce a set of techniques for haptically manipulating digital media such as video, audio, voicemail and computer graphics, utilizing virtual mediating dynamic models based on intuitive physical metaphors. For example, a video sequence can be modeled by linking its motion to a heavy spinning virtual wheel: the user browses by grasping a physical(More)

This paper describes a new technique for the synthesis of musical sounds which we have named Scanned Synthesis. Scanned Synthesis is based on the psychoacoustics of how we hear and appreciate timbres and on our motor control (haptic) abilities to manipulate timbres during live performance. A unique feature of scanned synthesis is its emphasis on the(More)
This paper presents a design for a randomized, placement-insensitive, data cache and analyzes its performance. An address stream is randomized using a hash function which selects a set in an associative cache. The manipulation of large data structures is modeled by traversal of a cyclic sweep address sequence and the miss ratio is accurately determined for(More)
Private Practice This study explores psychotherapists' somatic experiences during the therapeutic encounter, linking these to ideas from the phenomenological school of philosophy, in particular the notion of the lived-body paradigm in relation to therapists' physical reactions to clients. The methodology for this research evolved from 3 discussion groups,(More)
Although the INSPIRE Directive provides a roadmap and technical specifications for providing interoperability of spatial information created and held by public bodies across Europe, its relevance to archaeological and built heritage information is unclear. Whilst there is a clear need for access to information about the historic environment by a range of(More)
