My research work aims to enhance and stimulate humans creativity with technology, specifically I research:
1) how novel computer interfaces can facilitate new creative expressions,
2) how technology can support social creativity.
I have directed a national research project and supervised PhD and Master students. These are latest publications and videos from research results:
Collart, 3D creation in Mobiles from photographic textures
A collage is an artistic composition made by assembling different parts to create a new whole. This procedure can be applied for assembling tridimensional objects. In this paper we present CollARt, a Mobile Augmented Reality application which permits to create 3D photo collages. Virtual pieces are textured with pictures taken with the camera and can be blended with real objects.
Create Panoramic Photographs within Polyhedric Shapes!!!View them from inside or outside!!!
Picthru, a social mobile game for image combination
We implemented this iPhone game to explore how game mechanics can promote social creativity. We choose image combination as creative technique since smart phones have cameras for user to take pictures that represent combinations.
Photopieces, “on-the-fly” photo-collages
An iphone app available at the appStore, aims to take advantage of camera and processing capabilities of smart phones to facilitate new creative process producing on-the-fly photocollage; it was developed by Master student Asier Marzo.
TangibleIdeas, an interactive tabletop for group idea generation
This work part of a national research project investigated how interactive tabletops facilitate group idea generation. We build an interactive tabletop and multitouch software. This video shows users accessing their brainstorming networks composed of their brainstorming partners and their ideas.
FishTank, remote collaborative multitouch interaction
I build a collaborative space with multitouch interaction for remote collaboration, there are two versions where two persons share a 2D space, and a 3D space; it is a collaboration with GTI group in UPF, Barcelona. A paper was presented at EICS conference.
