Reflecting on a room of one reflectanceRuppertsberg, Alexa I.; Bloj, Marina (2007)We present a numerical analysis of rendered pairs of rooms, in which the spectral power distribution of the illuminant in one room matched the surface reflectance function in the other room, and vice versa. We ask whether distinction between the rooms is possible and on what cues this discrimination is based. Using accurately rendered three-dimensional (3D) scenes, we found that room pairs can be distinguished based on indirect illumination, as suggested by A. L. Gilchrist and A. Jacobsen (1984). In a simulated color constancy scenario, we show that indirect illumination plays a pivotal role as areas of indirect illumination undergo a smaller appearance change than areas of direct illumination. Our study confirms that indirect illumination can play a critical role in surface color recovery and shows how computer rendering programs, which model the light¿object interaction according to the laws of physics, are valuable tools that can be used to analyze and explore what image information is available to the visual system from 3D scenes.
Shadows and Reflections on Consultancy’s Dark SideMatthias, Olga (2017)Chapter 9 discusses a number of challenges which exist in the realm of management consulting. It presents a personal reflection, gained from twenty five years in several large consulting firms, on what is sometimes referred to as the ‘Dark Side’ of management consultancy, but which always encompasses the ethical rather than technical aspects of the work. As illustration of the complexities encountered by consultants, I provide two examples of large projects which both presented differently and had different outcomes. In discussing these challenges I hope to raise awareness of hidden difficulties which nevertheless have serious and sometimes far-reaching consequences for both client and consultant. Hopefully this will encourage reflection on how such situations could be minimised or avoided in future encounters.
Reflecting team processes in family therapy: A search for research.Willott, S.; Hatton, T.; Oyebode, Jan R. (2012)Tom Andersen's Reflecting Team approach is widely (and creatively) employed in family therapy. Despite continuing enthusiasm for the practice, however, there are few journal articles reporting empirical research and only one (now dated) review of the literature. After defining reflecting team processes through practices that are embedded in particular approaches to knowledge construction and theoretical interpretation, we offer an overview of the empirical research found in our search of the literature. In the second half of this article we ask why there is so little existing research in this area. Various possible explanations are explored and future directions proposed. We conclude that a dialogue around the complex interweaving of practice, theory and research (that is, praxis) would be a helpful overall stance to adopt in relation to future work in this area.
