The participants to this ebook speak about the wider spectrum of aesthetics—from summary features of symmetry and shape to principles of artistic expression and pleasure—in the context of machine technology. the idea in the back of aesthetic computing is that the sphere of computing should be enriched if it embraces all of aesthetics.

Aesthetic Computing techniques its topic from numerous views. After defining the sector and putting it in its ancient context, the e-book seems to be at paintings and layout, arithmetic and computing, and interface and interplay.
