EunJin Kim, the Ph.D. candidate of Color lab. published an article entitled “Image color adjustment for harmony with a target color” in Color Research & Application. Based on the insights from designers, the study developed an image color adjustment algorithm to achieve harmony between an image and a target color. The algorithm adjusts hue of…

Hyunjoo Bee received her master degree with a dissertation entitled, “Material Reconfiguration for Visual Exploration and Product Design Alternatives [재질 재배치에 기반한 제품 디자인 대안의 시각적 탐색]”. The study began with a simple but novel research question, “what about rearranging the materials before confirming the design?” Surprisingly, she found out that many of us are…

Prof. Suk delivered a talk invited by the Optical Society of Korea(OSK) to the special session, ‘color science’, for the optical science community. She introduced the affective effect of color particularly focusing on how people emotionally respond to the color properties. In the session, two more speakers were invited: Dr. Jisoo Hwang from the KRISS…

A summary of Hyunjoo’s mater thesis is published in the Archives of Design Research (AoDR). In the article, she investigated and demonstrated that material reconfiguration could be facilitated as an easy but effective way of visually exploring design alternatives. Besides interesting implications are included, for example, how many material alternatives designers usually try until they confirm the…

Kyungah Choi delivered a poster presentation entitled, “The human sclera and pupil as the calibration targets” at the IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2017) in Burlingame, California. The study examined the human sclera and the pupil as calibration targets for digital images to estimate human skin. Based on this assumption, a new color…

Kyungah Choi presented a work entitled, “Skin-representative region in a face for finding real skin color” at the IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2017) in Burlingame, California. The study suggests an algorithm for finding one’s skin region based on the primary calculation of the center region of the face for accurate detection and reduced…

Kyungah Choi presented a work entitled, “Performance of the 14 skin-colored patches in accurately estimating human skin color” at the IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2017) in Burlingame, California. The study provides evidence that the skin-colored patches support more accurate estimations of skin colors than the 24 colored patches. It is expected that the…
