The Electronic Visualization Laboratory

Thriving under the funding tree of the National Science Foundation and institutionally housed by the University of Illinois at Chicago, The Electronic Visualization Laboratory is an educational program dedicated to advanced scientific visualization. But by bridging the disciplines of art and computer science, this synthesizing hub of utopian high-mindedness never has the carnival of its art trump the grandeur of its science. Although this wedded claim seems recondite in something like the abstract, yet playful “Sierpinski Blows His Gasket,” recent projects such as the interactive video performance of “Dream Grrrls” show a potential for a mass-market introduction of a somewhat affordable and augmented virtual reality system. Below are mostly examples with no practical use taken from the E.V.L.’s youtube of measured unpopularity.
