The Place of Women’s Filmmaking in an Interdisciplinary Architecture Course
Pinar, Ekin (2022-12-01)
This paper explores the rich pedagogical potential of women’s filmmaking for interdisciplinary courses that explore the relations between cinema, architecture, and urbanism. While many courses on this subject tend to focus on white male filmmakers (e.g., Alfred Hitchcock, Jacques Tati, Stanley Kubrick, Fritz Lang), in constructing a new version of this elective, I aimed to extensively incorporate women’s filmmaking to the curriculum, especially opting for exemplary films that provide a rich basis to discuss...
Silhouette-based 3-D model reconstruction from multiple images
Mulayim, AY; Yilmaz, U; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-08-01)
The goal of this study is to investigate the reconstruction of three-dimensional (3-D) graphical models of real objects in a controlled imaging environment and present the work done in our group based on silhouette-based reconstruction. Although many parts of the whole system have been well-known in the literature and in practice, the main contribution of the paper is that it describes a complete, end-to-end system explained in detail. Based on a multi-image calibration method, an algorithm to extract the r...
Reconstruction of collective memory through spatial representations of İzmir waterfront, since the 1920s
