Impressionism, expressionism, surrealism: Automated recognition of painters and schools of art
Lior Shamir, Tomasz Macura, Nikita Orlov, D. Mark Eckley, Ilya G. Goldberg
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670672

We describe a method for automated recognition of painters and schools of art based on their signature styles and studied the computer-based perception of visual art. Paintings of nine artists, representing three different schools of...

Cognitive transfer of spatial awareness states from immersive virtual environments to reality
Katerina Mania, Shahrul Badariah, Matthew Coxon, Phil Watten
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670673

An individual's prior experience will influence how new visual information in a scene is perceived and remembered. Accuracy of memory performance per se is an imperfect reflection of the cognitive activity (awareness states) that underlies...

Perception of mechanically and optically simulated bumps and holes
Koert Van Mensvoort, Peter Vos, Dik J. Hermes, Robert Van Liere
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670674

In this article, we investigate the perception of optically simulated haptic feedback. The perception of optically and mechanically simulated bumps and holes was tested experimentally. In an earlier article, we have described the active cursor...

Making virtual walking real: Perceptual evaluation of a new treadmill control algorithm
Jan L. Souman, Paolo Robuffo Giordano, Ilja Frissen, Alessandro De Luca, Marc O. Ernst
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670675

For us humans, walking is our most natural way of moving through the world. One of the major challenges in present research on navigation in virtual reality is to enable users to physically walk through virtual environments. Although treadmills,...

Mesh saliency and human eye fixations
Youngmin Kim, Amitabh Varshney, David W. Jacobs, François Guimbretière
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670676

Mesh saliency has been proposed as a computational model of perceptual importance for meshes, and it has been used in graphics for abstraction, simplification, segmentation, illumination, rendering, and illustration. Even though this technique is...

Comparing lighting quality evaluations of real scenes with those from high dynamic range and conventional images
Guy R. Newsham, Duygu Cetegen, Jennifer A. Veitch, Lorne Whitehead
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670677

Thirty-nine participants viewed six interior scenes in an office/laboratory building and rated them for brightness, uniformity, pleasantness, and glare. The scenes were viewed in three presentation modes: participants saw the real space and images...

Perceptual organization of affective and sensorial expressive intentions in music performance
Luca Mion, Giovanni De Poli, Ennio Rapanà
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1670671.1670678

Expression communication is the added value of a musical performance. It is part of the reason why music is interesting to listen to and sounds alive. Previous work on the analysis of acoustical features yielded relevant features for the...
