Non-photorealistic Rendering Getting Physical

Non-photorealistic Rendering Getting Physical

This video was recorded at 5th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC), Ljubljana 2014. Computer graphics traditionally focusses on creating photorealistic images. However, for more than 20 years, computer graphics researchers have also worked on creating abstract visual representations. In my talk, I will give an overview of our research in this field. I will show how we apply such techniques in different fields ranging from landscape visualization to CAD. I will describe the projects related to our painting robot e-David, which is the basis from which we study human and machine painting. Using this machine, we create paintings with different media and in different styles completely automatically using a simple visual feedback loop. I will discuss the role of creativity in this process and how we want to incorporate artistic freedom and higher- order styles in the future.
