The role of computers and of computer-aided design tools for the creation of geometrical shapes that will be judged primarily by aesthetic considerations is reviewed. Examples are the procedural generation of abstract geometrical sculpture or the shape optimization of constrained curves and surfaces with some global ‘cost’ functional. Different possibilities for such ‘beauty functionals’ are discussed. Moreover, rapid prototyping tools based on layered manufacturing now add a new dimension to… CONTINUE READING
