Abstract:


    The field of display technology is rapidly developing, and LCD-and plasma-displays are already invading our surroundings. Alternative technologies such as “electronic ink”, electro-luminescent materials, and even color-changing textiles [Holmquist and Melin 2001] will further increase the number of possibilities to integrate computer graphics in our everyday lives. We believe that computer graphics for everyday life will have requirements that are very different from those of a Web page or a movie special effect. To explore this, we have developed a type of applications that anticipates a future use of computer graphics, so-called Informative Art.
