Advanced CGI 2017

The course will address various topics within the field digital imagery and CG production. By introducing advanced tools and techniques and through productive experimentation we will also address the ongoing discussion around the digital realm, image sciences and the iconic turn. Students are invoked to further develop their technical abilities as well as define/refine an […]

CGI – Task 2 Topic and Summary

CGI – Task 2 Topic and Summary

To communicate your ideas to a wider audience you need  to come up with a summary of your work. In most disciplines these summaries are called ‘papers’. I expect you to generate a kind of  ‘down scaled’ version of a paper. Here are some points that might be helpful to accomplish our second task: 01 Find […]
