“From Virtual to Real: Exploration in Computer Aided Sculpture”
Following the Tree Turbine project (previously conducted) I would like to continue the research of computer-aided sculptural processes. Many processes currently exist that include CNC routing, laser cutting and stereo lithography. Most of these technologies of artists are currently working with this technology. The project aims to create a virtual sculpture and animation. Through this process I will teach them the methods of digitizing a hand drawing as the framework for a 3D model. They will lean different SD modeling techniques in software such as Cinema SD, Sketchup, and Auto CAD. They will also learn how to animate the model and add light, atmosphere and an environment to the scene.
