just published: a book about theory & practice of art & aesthetics to computing.
"the contributors to this book discuss the broader spectrum of aesthetics, from abstract qualities of symmetry & form to ideas of creative expression & pleasure, in the context of computer science. the assumption behind aesthetic computing is that the field of computing will be enriched if it embraces all of aesthetics. human-computer interaction will benefit: 'usability,' for example, could refer to improving a user's emotional state, & new models of learning will emerge."
anyone wishes to submit a short review (e.g. in the context of visualization)?
