Title:

    Multiple perspectives in computer graphics: arguments from perceptual grouping and Renaissance art

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


      Research in computer graphics noticed deviations from strict ge- ometrical perspective in Renaissance painting, which it treated as  exceptional cases, related to specific human perceptions. Based on research in perceptual grouping and art history, this work argues  that the deviations are not exceptional but systematic. A new graph- ics architecture supporting multiple perspectives is also sketched.
