    'A is for Art' - Draw Paintings in You Mind

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2013)

    London, UK, 29 - 31 July 2013


    Min Zhang


    It was said that the visitor usually spend less than thirty seconds on looking at a single work of art during Museum visit (Beer 1987). Psychological research (Miller 1956) indicated that people can only hold seven items in their short-term memory. Therefore it is easy to forget that information about the works of art we encounter at the Museum or on the website.

    However, current digital systems for the art collections are archived by the relevant text-information and thus only search by keywords available. In the case of people only have the big picture about the artwork in the mind (with no knowledge about the title, artist, date of creating etc), it would be difficult for users to find out the expected artworks.
