summary The paper is a brief analysis and presentation of computational visual effects as they may relate to our understanding of space and the depicted object. Euclidean and non- Euclidean projective geometries can be applied, altered, and visualized through computer systems.

summary Although some authors sustain that postmodern culture, and particularly science, is in conflict with myths, from another perspective certain concepts, which come from philosophy, are still supporting cultural phenomenons that comes from new sciences, and particularly, from the new technological impact. The following concepts are brief comments about big themes, that will take us closer to delineating the actual cultural character, and to defining a few fundamental philosophical questions which are useful to the purposes of this article. The principal ideas of this paper come from applying philosophical concepts to the new design processes that involve digital media. After establishing the main hypothesis, the demonstration will be developed through the extensive explanation of concepts such as rhizome, emptiness and simulacra, and the characteristics that link them to digital environment, objects and processes.

title Hacia un vínculo entre el boceto y las herramientas de modelado NURBS: La representación de superficies de doble curvatura en el diseño industrial [The link between the Sketch and Tools of Modeled NURBS: The Representation of Surfaces of Double Curvature in Industrial Design ]

summary This poster shows a methodological approach developed at the School ofIndustrial Design (Universidad de Los Andes, Venezuela) in order to achievethree objectives. Firstly, to assist future industrial designers to analyze and guide their ideas during the early stages of the design process with a sort of graphics, whose expressive precision is different to the metric one. Secondly, to help students to improve their graphic skills in order to communicate their ideas to others during the form creation phases of thedesign process. Thirdly, to promote the use of drawing as a way to define a link between hand drawing and modeling in CAD’s NURBS*. These aspects are especially relevant if we consider that such methodological links, although are frequently assumed by some design firms, they have been hardly visualized in the academic environment as part of the “teaching- learning” process.

title Ecomorphic Dialogues
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary The biological concept of ecomorphology examines the morphology of the organism in relation to the environment it inhabits. However, the organism itself is an active agent that shapes the environment that in turn shapes it. The two are linked through what autopoietic theory calls structural coupling, and thus the environment itself evolves as an ecomorphic entity. This short paper discusses modelling the process of ecomorphic evolution of an art gallery, which is built around the natural interaction, or hermeneutic dialogue, between people and artworks within it. The natural interactions from the point of view of the person are those based on active perception of the environment, that is, based solely on possiblities that the environment affords to the person. In the model presented here, the possibilities of the gallery are to view the artwork on display, and agents with vision act out the part of the people. However, the artwork itself is engaged in a game in which it tries to place itself in popular rooms within the gallery, moving from location to location to achieve this. Around this visually coupled interaction between viewer and artwork, the walls of the gallery are formed and reformed according to the location of the players, in order to create a constantly evolving space in which the game is played: the ecomorphic dialogue of artwork and art viewer.

title Invisible Design Safari

summary The visually impaired on a daily basis have to undertake analysis of our buildings and cities to safely survive, and hopefully thrive. They have not been asked to create and design new buildings and or communities, this is normally the preserve of professionals. There is no real reason why they should not, and with this in mind the author organised four summer schools at the University of Bristol to explore these issues. The design proposals/results were of the highest quality and the students found the experience stimulating.

title User Model of a Personal Assistant in Collaborative Design Environments
source Gero JS and Brazier FMT (eds) (2002) Agents in Design 2002. Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney, pp. 39-54
summary During the past decade, intelligent agents have been applied in attempts to a number of collaborative engineering design systems. Intelligent interface agents or personal assistants play a very important role in such systems. A fundamental issue in designing a personal assistant is how to build adequate models of the user and the domain. This paper proposes a cognitive user model of a personal assistant in collaborative design environments, which comprises a user interest model, a user behavior model, an inference component and a collaboration component. These models and components can help agents effectively achieve the user's goals. The proposed user model is being implemented in a coordinated, intelligent, rational agent (CIR-Agent) model on a FIPA-compliant platform. A case study in a multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) software environment is also presented.

title Adaptive Systems Music: Musical Structures from Algorithmic Process
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary The generation of large scale structures at the level of musical form represents a major challenge for current approaches to generative music. This is espescially true for approaches aimed at generating "new music", which neccesarily employ organisational priciples other than those prescribed by traditional music theory...

title Prognosis of Landscape Change for the Area of Ellingerode (Hessen, Germany)
source Environmental Simulation - New Impulses in Planning Processes [Proceedings of the 5th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN 3-922602-85-1]
summary In the academic year of 1999/2000, a student project at the University of Kassel started to work on a prognosis of landscape change for a mid mountain range area of Hessen (Germany). The project, named ”Change of Landscape in the Area of Ellingerode”, was based at first on the question: "How does the landscape change if the AGENDA 2000 (the present agricultural policy of the European Union) takes effect?”. The students soon realized that to give an answer on this question, basic inquiry on the key factors that govern the changes of landscape are needed. So actually the primary question was ”How does landscape change?”
