An artist article that discusses the theoertical and aesthetic elements of my work Epiphytic Memory. Accepted into Leonardo, to be published in 2023. The linked article is the final author pre-print, and has not been edited by the MIT Press editors.
Here I discuss my project Epiphytic Memory (at the time called 'Houses for Plants by Plants') at the Australasian Association of Digital Humanities' Conference, 2021. This was in the context of a panel on art, and technology, with art-historian Bridie Lonie, and artist David Green.
Results and analysis of implementing monte-carlo light-transport methods (bi-directional path-tracing, image-space photon-mapping) in the real-time setting (DX12/DXR) on procedural surfaces.
Outlines a method to reconstruct objects that are traditionally hard to image using structure from motion. The above image illustrates the observed error - where blue is closer to the ground-truth. The aim is to make sure metric information is maintained when a real object is reconstructed, allowing for precise and relevant measurements. In general this research intends to allow archeologists a ‘non-invasive’ means to study archeological sites, where they no longer need to appropriate artifacts from a site, but instead can image them with a camera and perform analysis off-site.
