Game developer and 3D technical lead Keith O’Conor of Romero games recently wrote a ‘GPU Performance for Game Artists 101’ that breaks down the GPU pipeline from input assembly through to final render.
A meditation on several recent Troika projects that render cellular automata with dice and anodised aluminium rather than pixels on a screen. Realized over the last four years, these works demonstrate how a prolonged investigation into a rudimentary approach can yield rich dividends.
Created by Reza Ali, F3, [Form From Function], is a playful and powerful 3D design app that enables you to live code 3D form, rapidly iterate on its design, and export for 3D printing, rendering and animation. F3 uses signed distance functions (SDFs) to build forms – designing 3D forms using 2D image cross sections.
In the Eyes of the Animal is the latest installation by Marshmallow Laser Feast, commissioned by the AND Festival and set in Grizedale Forest, that takes visitors on a fascinating journey allowing them to fly above the forest canopy, come face-to-face with hi-definition critters and embody various animals as they traverse the landscape.
Presented at the recent Siggraph, Automultiscopic 3D displays allow a large number of viewers to experience 3D content simultaneously without the special glasses or head gear.
Designed by Tsinghua University team led by Danqing Shi, The Field of Hope is a lighting installation for the 2015 Milan EXPO China Pavilion. It consists of 30,000 metal “straws”, each with a LED diffuser tip, functioning as a 3-dimensional pixel display field.
Transmissions from the Technological Sublime is a panoramic multimedia installation that depicts a nocturnal landscape of non-place populated by infrastructure rather than people. Hatched as a MFA thesis project within OCAD University’s integrated media program by Toronto’s Michael Trommer, the audiovisual piece renders highways, shipping channels, airports, and office parks as uncanny interstitial zones of contemplation.
Visions of America: Amériques is a site-specific architectural video installation, developed to illuminate and enhance the Varèse’s composition and to activate the architecture of Frank Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Created by Princemio in collaboration with onformative, the Pathfinder project was created with aim to contribute to the creative processes of choreographic development.
Created by Rosalie Yu & Alon Chitayat, the project aim was to create a series of self portraits that treat the body as a canvas for 3d drawing.
Created by Alex Myers, Nothing of This is Ours is game of infinite, surrealistic worlds with creatures, alchemistic symbols, buddhas and other worldly cultural heritages.
This video by Marshmallow Laser Feast and Analog is a study of mortality that explores photogrammetry techniques, capturing the real-life model using 94 DSLR cameras and creating photo-realistic renderings in 3d.
