Synthetic Images on Real Surfaces
We describe several ways to create real surfaces that display one or more prescribed images formed by different effects on the surface, such as diffuse reflection or self-occlusion. Especially the effect of showing different images for different directions of light is surprising and not commonly seen in the real world. We discuss necessary theoretical limitations, measurements, and the different algorithms. The resulting surfaces have applications in entertainment, fabrication, and architecture.
