From Johns she has taken the half-scrutable erotic semiosis, the occasional exposed stretcher bars, the affixed "balls," and the household objects; from Rauschenberg, a warmer, looser reliance on at-hand materials and the newspaper-based collage-as-rebus; and from Twombly, a certain mystical fogginess, the decidedly nongeometrical classical references, and a romantic employ of names from antiquity etched in rustic graffiti.
Categorizations of bar chart images refer to their labeling into one of the predefined geometrical or nongeometrical classes.
But notice that we will not have grounded the geometrical fact that to be a triangle is to be a three-sided polygon in a nongeometrical fact.
(2) The dimension of location (also called place, configuration, orientation, localiser) concerns the spatial relation between the Figure (moving or stationary) and the Ground, based on a variety of geometrical and nongeometrical notions that are often represented with such primes as ON, UNDER, and BETWEEN.
Further on, it is analyzed the Hartehberg-Denavit (HD) geometrical errors influences, as well the nongeometrical errors influences, generated by the clearance from the robot's joints, on his end-effectors pose errors.
The package, however, may also be modified (by rewriting routine DSCFUN) to solve some so-called generalized accessory parameter problems, in which some equations in the nonlinear system are formulated using nongeometrical conditions associated with a particular problem (see Elcrat and Hu [1996] and Trefethen [1989a]).
Once all the mold-design parameters have been entered, the system can generate both graphic and nongeometrical information on the intelligent objects.
The things painted are automatically memorable owing to their mass-culture prominence, the brushwork memorable because it reenacts the contradiction between what Alfred Barr famously called the geometrical and nongeometrical abstraction that informs modernism: Robinson's images tend to have a succinctness and clarity, even when their cup runneth over with gestural fervor.
Knowledge-based systems operate much as parametric systems do, but their use of artificial intelligence and object-oriented programming allows knowledge-based systems to incorporate nongeometrical information, such as manufacturing, cost, and material criteria, with geometry.
Here, for the first time, Barr crystallized MOMA's paradigmatic vision of modernism as a progressive, formalist development across the European avant-gardes that could be traced along a dense network of intersecting pathways beginning with various forms of Post-Impressionism in the 1890s and culminating by the mid-1930s in "geometrical" and "nongeometrical" abstract art.
As Kandinsky wrote to Schonberg after the concert, what he found exciting in the music was its play of independent voices and its new harmony: dissonant, illogical, nongeometrical. The resulting painting, one of the freshest Kandinsky ever made, is an abstracted recollection of the concert hall dominated by a black, piano-like shape on a yellow ground.
