13: Perceptual and Artistic Principles for Effective Computer Depiction



Sunday, Full Day
8:30 am – 5:15 pm
Room 006AB

For both artists and scientists: an exploration of artistic techniques, their successful adaptation to computer depiction, and how the perceptual and cognitive sciences illuminate the connections between human perception and picture production.

Prerequisites
Attendees should be familiar with pictures, open-minded, and curious about the connections between art and science.

Topics
Art and science, perception, visualization, color, cognitive psychology, perspective distortion, limitations of the medium, overcoming the flatness of pictures, depth cues, contrast management, Gestalt and picture organization, gaze and focus, route maps, neurology, aesthetics, effective shape visualization. This course does not include topics such as image difference metrics and perceptually adaptive rendering.
