Perfectly Real- digital models exhibition


Dates:
Sat Oct 18, 2003 00:00 - Fri Oct 10, 2003

Perfectly Real– women in bits and bytes
Watermans Gallery and theatre foyer
18th October- 11 november 03
artist talk: wed 5th nov 4pm
guided tour: sat 8th nov 12 noon

If you could design a woman what would she look like? How realistic can a 3D image of a woman be? Judge for yourself at this life-like exhibition of colourful imagery, in conjunction with publishers TASCHEN, focusing on computer graphics and animation of the female form. See the process involved in making a virtual women, from the initial sketch to the software used. 3D modeling is somewhat akin to traditional sculpture- animators build a wire frame of the body parts and then apply layers of skin, clothing, hair and other features. In an age in which virtual characters are being copyrighted, you should get acquainted with the "people" you'll be coming across in the future on TV and film; like Steven Stahlberg's Webbie Tookay, the first virtual model to sign with Elite Digital Models Agency.

Play me! An exhibition exploring playfulness


Dates:
Sat Jul 19, 2003 00:00 - Fri Jul 18, 2003

PLAY ME!
@ Watermans Art Gallery, London

Sat 19 July 03 – Sun 3 Aug 03
"Play has always been very strong element of human culture. Johann Huizinga in his book Homo Ludens (The Playful Human), subtitled: 'A Study of the Element of Play in Culture', says that the liberation of man's ludic potential is directly linked to his liberation as a social being. Huizinga predicted that human beings would soon be replaced by machines and robots for work purposes. That there would be nothing left for humans but their feelings, imagination and creativity. All the rest would be done better by computers."

Play Me! is a selected exhibition of work by graduating BA Digital Arts and MA Digital Arts from the London College of Music and Media, Ealing.

Play Me! has been curated by Hedley Roberts with James Coupe and Niki Gomez. Play Me! has been commissioned by Watermans Art Gallery.
