One cool thing about computer vision, is that the techniques that we will learn about, need not only be used with camera images - but also images created with other sensors. So those techniques that you will learn, will be useful for any data, that has what we call, “spatial coherency”.
And spatially coherent data can be thought of as any data that predictably varies over space, like sound, for example. If you hear sound from a speaker close up it will sound very loud, but the farther you get away, the softer the sound will get. And so the volume of a sound can give you spatial information!
Bret Victor - Stop drawing dead fish
-Responsiveness is the essence of the computer as an art medium
-when you create art that doesn't have behavior you're not living up to the medium of the computer
-what happens where the art and artist are collaborating, responding to each other
-capture knowledge of the hands, knowledge of the body
-computer as a performance medium
-strengh of computer is that objects created in that medium can behave and respond. everything you draw should be alive by default. and art could collaborate with the performer too. artists can create behaviors by direct manipulation.
why code is not the right language/medium for art:
-artists create art ot express something they can't with language
