Title Learning from the Cornell Box
Author(s) Niedenthal, Simon
Date 2002
English abstract
The Cornell Box serves as a visual emblem of the divide between arts and sciences first articulated by C. P. Snow over 40 years ago. To historians of American Art, "Cornell Box" refers to the shadow boxes of Joseph Cornell; in the world of computer graphics, the Cornell Box is the evaluative environment in which the Cornell University Program of Computer Graphics refined its radiosity rendering algorithms. Considering both boxes with reference to the perceptual thought of James J. Gibson allows us to generate a site for collaboration at the intersection of light and art for designers and computer scientists devoted to the development of new digital media.
