Programmed Graphics in Computer Art and Animation

Published in Leonardo Vol 28, No.2, pp. 113-121, ISSN 0024-094X

Computer artists and designers are using increasingly sophisticated software packages in the generation and manipulation of images.

This paper looks at methods for manipulating parameters based on the metaphor of navigating a parameter space.
