The Present and Future of The Information Art Through Ultra-High-Definition CG

Courses Information

A computer graphics (CG) simulation for biological and natural phenomena should express complex shape, dense of color, and movement or behavior of the object to be depicted. We then note that CG has such a high affinity for the ultra-high-definition video as to convey vast amounts of information inherited in the object. This course presents the state-of-the-art and future of the information art, featuring Yoichiro Kawaguchi's work with ultra-high-definition CG. Hideichi Tamegaya, the co-presenter of this course, demonstrates ultra-high-definition video technology developed in Japan. Yoichiro and Hideichi will also discuss the future of artistic expressions based on the new technology.
