Brian Wyvill, Paul G. Kry, Raimund Seidel, David Mould: Determining an Aesthetic Inscribed Curve. In: Douglas W. Cunningham, Donald H. House (Eds.): Workshop on Computational Aesthetics, 2012. 63-70



In this work we propose both implicit and parametric curves to represent aesthetic curves inscribed within Voronoi cells in R2. A user survey was conducted to determine, which class of curves are generally accepted as the more aesthetic. We present the curves, the survey results, and the implications for future work on simulating sponge like volumes.
