Computer graphics has traditionally been driven by the quest for photorealism: the accurate depiction of the bahaviour of light and surfaces. But photorealism need not be the only goal of computer graphics. A deliberate departure from realism unlocks additional modes of communication that are physically inaccurate but aesthetically rich. Nonphotorealistic graphics has applications in art, design, entertainment, and scientific visualization.
The goal of this course is to explore the power and potential of nonphotorealistic computer graphics. It will cover popular techniques and algorithms, and survey successful applications.
