3D Explorations from Screen to Laser Cut

This course expands student¿s creative vision through the integration of digital media with 3D design-thinking and making. Students will gain an awareness of the ways in which the multi-media landscape is changing as the next generation of artists and designers integrate digital and physical experiences fluidly in their creative practices. We will start with an introduction to 3D design principles via paper cutting and construction techniques that will lead students through the process involved in the design of vector-based graphic forms suitable for laser-cutting. Students will create at least one laser cut project, designs and concepts for an interactive package design ¿experience¿ and a proposal for a public art project. Previous 3D making experience is not required, but students are recommended to take DGCMI-UC1404 Media Design I prior to this class.
