It would be easy to gaze into the distant future and speculate what image synthesis technology may be. Since Star Trek with its Holodeck has already done this far better than I can, prognosticating will not be my main focus here. Instead, I hope to relate some of my own inspiration for getting involved with computer graphics, an inspiration that is still an unrealized dream, one that I'm uncertain how to achieve. My interest in computer graphics can best be summed up as a desire to create tools for imaginaton amplification.
