Abstraction can be challenging for artists, and even more so for machines. The creators behind SIGGRAPH 2022 Technical Paper "CLIPasso," an object-sketching method that can achieve different levels of abstraction, share the inspiration behind their research and how their work is different from traditional sketching methods. If you need advice on how to start your own Technical Papers submission, take the first step by reading about the research that won one of the SIGGRAPH 2022 Technical Papers Best Paper Awards.
