Event Description

Blurred Lines is the art exhibition associated with Expressive 2014, a conference that blends three conferences: Non-Photorealistic Animation and Rendering, Computational Aesthetics, and Sketch-Based Interfaces and Modeling. Expressive 2014 will be co-located with SIGGRAPH 2014 being held in Vancouver August 10–14.

Blurred Lines refers to a line quality often seen in Non-Photorealistic Rendering (NPR), and to the often ambiguous nature of author in artworks that use computer-run algorithms to generate all or some of their content.

The curatorial team is looking for works that highlight the tension between machine and human, between data and content, and between tool and collaborator. More than just using existing tools to make work, we want to see misuses of tools, unpredictable commands and queries, tools as significant creative presence, and alternate intelligences.

Some questions we seek to highlight:

  • Can we speak of the whole apparatus as author?
  • If a technique becomes tool, does it cease to be interesting?
  • How can we transcend the look of our tools?
  • Can a computer be a co-author? Where is that line?
  • Is the algorithm the artwork? Can it be more interesting than its output?
  • What is the role of performance in computational aesthetics?
