Promotional Information

A dramatic and inspiring exploration of computers, art, and design. No one should miss the experience of entering the portals of this beautiful book to stimulate creative thinking and develop a fresh way to look at the world, from novel computer interfaces to new social fabrics and communication methods. -- Clifford A. Pickover, author of A Passion for Mathematics and Sex, Drugs, Einstein, and Elves Aesthetic Computing brings the exploration of aesthetic experience beyond the representation of natural processes and technological events, and beyond optimization in mathematics and computing. Instead, the contributors envision a visual space where concepts of aesthetics from both art and computing can enhance each other. -- Anna Ursyn, Professor of Visual Arts, University of Northern Colorado Aesthetic Computing examines the relationship between beauty and computation from a variety of perspectives. With the advent of digital art and digitally created music, we have come to accept that computation can be the medium through which beauty is expressed. Less obvious is the idea that logic has its own inherent beauty and computation a unique aesthetics. Perhaps most intriguing of all is the artistic presentation of mathematical concepts in computationally produced form. This collection of essays is a fascinating exploration of the varied terrain where abstraction and creative force meet. -- Jennifer Burg, Department of Computer Science, Wake Forest University

Reviews

"A dramatic and inspiring exploration of computers, art, and design. No one should miss the experience of entering the portals of this beautiful book to stimulate creative thinking and develop a fresh way to look at the world, from novel computer interfaces to new social fabrics and communication methods."--Clifford A. Pickover, author of *A Passion for Mathematics* and *Sex, Drugs, Einstein, and Elves* "Books on scientific photography with such beauty, breadth, and insight are rare. Felice Frankel's Envisioning Science is chock full of mind-boggling images and valuable information--not only for curious artists, students, and lay people, but also for seasoned researchers and photographers. The eclectic Frankel is both a scientist and photographer, and with the cold logic of the one and the inspired vision of the other, she covers an array of topics sure to stimulate your imagination and sense of wonder at the incredible vastness of the physical world."--Clifford A.
