Abstract:


    Reality: Who needs it? Is computer graphics about building more and more accurate simulations of the real world, down to the last photon? Is computer graphics really hard physics dressed in Hollywood clothing? Or is reality, like, sooooo old fashioned? Is computer graphics now free from its shackles? Free to create non-whatever-realistic experiences? Free to write its own laws, with no reference to “reality?” This panel sheds some light (real or imagined) on these complex questions.
