Author information

1995 Volume 2 Issue 7 Pages 1-8


ABSTRACT: This paper is to discuss the relationship between the points of interest of the people who contemplate the aesthetic aspects of bridge design and their actual evaluation thereof. The contemplative behaviors of people were directly measured by the optical instruments(so called ?gEyemark Recorder?h). The static pattern which is concerned with the spatial distribution and complexity of the loci of eyemarks of individual subjects are particularly focused on in this paper. The complexity of this pattern for each subject is measured by the information theory, and the pattern is expressed in terms of the numerical value called "Amount of Information".
