Title:

    The Engineering of Vision and the Aesthetics of Computer Art

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    The rise of modern image indus­tries, such as computer graphics, human factors research, or com­puter vision, can be seen as a part of the shift to the post-industrial society of perceptual labor. In contemporary society, human vision has become the key instru­ment of labor: the channel of communication between human and machine. If the industry aims to make human vision as produc­tive and as efficient as possible, the computer artist, in contrast, can be defined as a designer of bad interfaces: interfaces that are inefficient, wasteful, confusing.
