dc.description.abstractCeltic art contains mysterious and fascinating aesthetic elements including complex knot work motifs. The problem is that creating and exploring these motifs require substantial human effort. One solution to this problem is to create a process that collaboratively uses interactive and procedural methods within a computer graphic environment. Spline models of Celtic knot work can be interactively modeled and used as input into procedural shaders. Procedural shaders are computer programs that describe surface, light, and volumetric appearances to a renderer. The control points of spline models can be used to drive shading procedures such as the coloring and displacement of surface meshes. The result of this thesis provides both an automated and interactive process that is capable of producing complex interlaced structures such as Celtic knot work within a three-dimensional environment.en
