The steadily increasing availability of computational resources has had a substantial impact on all types of human activity. While engineering and science are obvious targets of application, major impacts have also been felt in communication, business, and finance. The arts and humanities have not been immune from the effects of computing. The ease of editing documents in a computational environment has taken some of the sting out of writing well. The ability to manage large arrays of numbers is bringing the same facility to still and video image recording and handling. This ready abililty to edit prose, to make digital images, to control lighting systems, or to generate different three-dimensional perspectives of a structure has impacted writing, art, theater, and architecture. We are in the midst of a revolution, and Cornell is moving at the head of it.
