Aesthetic computing for representation of the computing process and expansion of perceptual dimensions: Cases for Art, Education, and Interfaces

Document Type

Publication Date



With the advances of technologies, the application of computing to aesthetics has rapidly increased. However, little effort has been put to apply aesthetics to computing. Aesthetic Computing is an attempt to fill that research gap. The present paper revisits and elaborates its concept, and highlights “embodiment” as a new format of representation of Aesthetic Computing. The present paper also describes how embodiment can provide more opportunities for accessibility and personalization of computing across different projects – art, STEAM education, and in-vehicle interfaces. Finally, more aesthetic components in Aesthetic Computing are discussed for future research.
