In conjuction with one of the current shows in the University Art Gallery–"Pioneers of Digital Media" curated by Prof. Matt Derezinski–one of the artists in that show, Prof. Dane Webster (Associate Professor of Creative Technologies, Virginia Tech University) will be giving a talk. Prof. Webster's presentation, "Finding the Sweet Spot: Adventures in Computer Animation and Visualization" will take place on Monday, Febuary 6 at 5:30 p.m. in Violette Hall Rm. 1000. Prof. Webster will be discussing his background and experience in the world of three-dimensional animation. This illustrated talk will explore how he uses pictures to build three-dimensional environments, and then how he translates those into film versions of those same environments. He will also discuss ways in which he can create models on the computer and then use those to create actual 3D models in wax and how he applies these skills in artwork, interactive media, and visual presentations. This event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
