    • Shaking up Earth Science: Visual and Auditory Representations of Earthquake Interactions 

      Aiken, Chastity; Simpson, David; Kilb, Debi; Shelly, David; Peng, Zhigang; Michael, Andy; Enescu, Bogdan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      One earthquake can influence subsequent earthquakes. To demonstrate such earthquake interactions, seismologists have used in the past "snapshot" static images. Although statis images can, by themselves, convey basic ...
    • Sonification for the Installation Drawn Together 

      Bretan, Mason; Weinberg, Gil; Freeman, Jason (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This extended abstract describes Drawn Together, an interactive art installation in which a person takes turns drawing with a computer. We describe the process of the interaction and the methods used to creatively sonify ...
