Caustics and translucency perception

Best Student Paper Material Appearance 2020 Conference

Caustics and translucency perception
Davit Gigilashvili, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway)

Have you ever observed vivid patterns of light projected onto a table by a wine glass or a crystal figure? These patterns carry interesting information about the material they are cast by. In this talk, I discuss these patterns as a potential cue for helping us judge the translucence of materials.

Davit Gigilashvili is a third year PhD student at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology studying perception of material appearance. His research interests include gloss and translucency perception, color vision, computer graphics, and image quality. His pre-pandemic hobbies were hiking and traveling, while cooking and baking have become his major post-pandemic hobbies.
