ABSTRACT

    As modern computer graphics and printing technology become increasingly advanced, automatic generation of sophisticated abstract paintings becomes possible. This talk will first introduce the general concepts of aesthetic computing and computational aesthetics, and a 4-level classification in terms of computational power utilized for computer generated art. We will present a recent project on automatic generation ofthe well-known styles of abstract paintings, such as Pollock, Kandinsky, Miro, and Picasso, and Kandinsky Fonts, using the programming language Processing. The generation process is demonstrated with sample generated images styled on some of the best-known paintings. Using random generation, every styled image generated can be unique. We will also introduce our recent attempt in measuring the aesthetics of Chinese ink paintings and logo designs. Finally, we will sample a few projects in information visualization, with demos.
