Lorem ipsum logos


The phrase Lorem Ipsum came from the classical Latin literature and was used by Cicero more than 2000 years ago. Since 1500's Lorem Ipsum was used as a dummy text in order to visualize the graphical layout through a meaningless text. The goal was to let readers concentrate on the visual representation only. The current paper focuses on the Lorem Ipsum problem in modern Logo implementations. Most of them seem to focus on the semantics of the Logo language paying less attention to the quality of the graphical output. The Turtle Graphics is typical for Logos to the extent that many people think they are two names for the same thing. Unfortunately Turtle Graphics have not changed significantly since its introduction decades ago. And yet, it remains the only graphical instrumentarium of Logo. The Lorem Ipsum Logos is actually an attempt to introduce virtual reality and photo-realism to Logo users. Discussed are programs which can be treated entirely as a Lorem Ipsum text – the focus is entirely on the graphical result, and no source code is shown. Various techniques are demonstrated to achieve realism in the creation of Logo-based animations and 3D scenes. It is believed, that when users see and explore the other side of Logo, its Lorem Ipsum face, they will start to dare using Logo for solving an entirely new range of problems – problems, which match more closely to the interest of contemporary people.
