Book Summary

"This thesis presents a framework for designing shadow art with occluders in ballistic motion. A stochastic optimization is used to find the parameters of a multi-body physics simulation that produce the desired shadow at a specific moment in time. Simulations are performed across many different initial conditions, and a set of carefully designed energy functions are used to evaluate the motion trajectories and shadows of bodies. The best parameters are selected, resulting in a simulation on ballistic motion that produces ephemeral shadow art. Users can design physically plausible artwork that would be extremely challenging or nearly impossible by manual effort. A number of compelling examples are presented and analyzed." --
