Topics that will be covered l.jpg
Topics That Will Be Covered

  • Brief definition of static, dynamic data structures

  • Overview of Deliverable #1

  • Process of mapping a data structure to a specific 2-D painting or drawing

  • The “feel” of the final product

  • Examples in art, film, and games


Static and dynamic data structures l.jpg
Static and Dynamic Data Structures

  • Static (i.e. arrays, entity-relationship diagrams)

  • Dynamic (i.e. finite-state machines, pointers)

    By now, you’ve probably had enough definitions of these…

Overview of deliverable 1 l.jpg
Overview of Deliverable #1

  • Mapping a FSM of a microwave to architecture of a horse barn


Overview of deliverable 1 general contents l.jpg
Overview of Deliverable #1General Contents

  • Semantic network for source (microwave FSM) and target (horse barn)

  • Diagram of microwave FSM

  • Semantic network connection between source and target

  • Show plan view of target (created horse barn)

StateDescription

StandingWaiting for user to choose type of horse. Display shows mock time on wall of barn.

PonyChosen by user, represented by smaller horse.

StallionChosen by user, represented by larger horse.

Set DistanceUser inputs the distance he/she wishes to travel on the track with the horse.

DisabledIf door is open, user can’t go anywhere because they don’t want to let the other horse out!

EnabledIf door is closed, then user can proceed to travel around track.

TrackUser gets on horse, ride.


Process of mapping a data structure to 2 d art l.jpg
Process of Mapping a Data Structure to 2-D Art

  • The semantic network is the most important step for creating a “reproducible” piece of art based on the qualities of the image.

  • The semantic network for the 2-D image may be composed of the underlying structures and substructures. To find this…


Process of mapping a data structure to 2 d art14 l.jpg
Process of Mapping a Data Structure to 2-D Art

  • Categorize the type of image style (i.e. abstract, mimetic, surreal)

  • Break the image down into visual components - objects and transitions

  • Regroup the components according to common properties (i.e. color, shape, texture, etc)


Process of mapping a data structure to 2 d art15 l.jpg
Process of Mapping a Data Structure to 2-D Art

Let’s try this for a basic example, but first…


Please note l.jpg
Please Note:

This presentation may include art that depicts nudity, sexual acts, and/or violent material. If you object to looking at such artwork, please react accordingly. I invite all of your ideas regarding this type of fantasy art.

Category: “Surrealistic Nature”

Object(Face, Eyes, Nose, etc)

Transition (Wave shape)

Object (Water)

Object (Butterfly)


A simple example to map18 l.jpg
A Simple Example to Map

Face/Eyes/Nose

Butterfly “on” face

Connected by waves, visual layering

Face “on” the water

Connected by wave pattern

Butterfly

Water “under” butterfly

Connected by visual layering

Water

* This hierarchy allows one to build the semantic network to use

as a metaphor for a data structure.


The feel of the final product l.jpg
The “Feel” of the Final Product

  • Sketches

  • Example works

  • Integrate a unique “dream-like” experience for the user


Examples in art and film l.jpg
Examples in Art and Film

  • Film - The Cell

  • Painting - H.R. Giger, DiMaccio, Beksinski

  • Photography - Joel-Peter Witkin

  • Video games - Alice

Summary of Topics Covered

  • Brief definition of static, dynamic data structures

  • Overview of Deliverable #1

  • Process of mapping a data structure to a specific 2-D painting or drawing

  • The “feel” of the final product (dream-like)

  • Examples of inspiring visuals


Slide22 l.jpg

“Those who shrink back reflexively, and who do not gather themselves to plunge forward again, miss the point, and the awesome wonder of it all is left for the rest of us to ruminate over, and marvel at.” - James Cowan on the shock value of H.R. Giger’s art
