Section Cut Workshop 8: Boss Level
March 28, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
SC+UTK #8: BOSS LEVEL
WELCOME TO OUR 8th WORKSHOP @UTK!
In this culminating workshop of our 2014-15 Digital Deployment series, Section Cut invites students to abstract and reinterpret the familiar. Our site begins as the UTK atrium, but will quickly transform into an intricate imaginary world.
After manipulation of digital photography, students will underlay and extrude abstracted images to construct novel terrain. We will evaluate and occupy these newly constructed sites as if they were levels of a video game – infused with speculative program, atmosphere, and narrative.
The workshop will explore the combined capabilities of Rhino and the Adobe Creative Suite, providing an opportunity to dream outside the confines of the studio brief, and a transportable graphic workflow that translates Rhino models into beautiful isometric representations.
Join us, and you’ll never look at your atrium in the same way again.
