Interactive Reflections on Curved Objects
Global view-dependent illumination phenomena, in particular reflections, greatly enhance the realism of computer-generated imagery. Current interactive rendering methods do not pr...

Computer-generated Floral Ornament
This paper describes some of the principles of traditional floral ornamental design, and explores ways in which these designs can be created algorithmically. It introduces the id...

mediaBlocks: Physical Containers, Transports, and Controls for Online Media
We present a tangible user interface based upon mediaBlocks: small, electronically tagged wooden blocks that serve as physical icons (“phicons”) for the containment, transport...

Exact Evaluation of Catmull-Clark Subdivision Surfaces at Arbitrary Parameter Values
In this paper we disprove the belief widespread within the computer graphics community that Catmull-Clark subdivision surfaces cannot be evaluated directly without explicitly subd...

Visibility Sorting and Compositing Without Splitting for Image Layer Decompositions
We present an efficient algorithm for visibility sorting a set of moving geometric objects into a sequence of image layers which are composited to produce the final image. Inste...
