Use of IBM Infowindows Workstation for Aesthetic Preference Studies Two.
McWhinnie, Harold J.
This paper presents some research which makes use of the computer with a video disk player to do aesthetic analyses of the work of Vincent Van Gogh which can be used in art history slide lectures. It begins with discussions of a video disk system with IBM (International Business Machines) Infowindows and of several software systems. The paper presents only several possible uses of the computer with interactive videodisks for aesthetic analyses and creative efforts. It also presents the results of a pilot study undertaken in the 1990 semester to collect data relative to students' aesthetic preferences with a videodisk of the work of Vincent Van Gogh. It discusses how IBM's Handy software and authoring language might be employed to collect data and present interactive experimental treatments of research in empirical aesthetics.
