Title: New Computer Art Tools
In this talk, I will describe two new computer art tools that I have had a hand in creating. These tools are not wild improvisations on the fringe of the usable; rather, they revisit core graphics technologies to address specific deficiencies or leverage new insights. First, I will discuss a program that allows users to paint with edges instead of colors . Next I will describe two new methods for stacking image elements locally [2,3]. I will conclude by discussing future projects that continue this trajectory of reform.
