Join artist Ben Chang in this two-part 3D digital workshop. We will explore cinematic filmmaking with virtual architecture as a digital cinematic set using Rhino 3D and Unreal Engine 4.

Benjamin Chang is a 3D artist and architectural designer working with digital media, spatial perception, geometry, and ritual practices as storytelling devices that question our innate ontological dilemmas. Deeply invested in the social and philosophical vision of Cosmopolitanism, his practice aims to dissolve the culturally imposed boundaries embedded in the superstructure of materialism. Perplexed by the representations of reality, he is on a journey to catalog the matrix. Chang holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Toronto, a Bachelor of Design from OCAD University, and is currently practicing architecture in Ontario.

Experimental PCB’s for Artists
Saturday, November 26 | 1-4pm ET
In-person at InterAccess (950 Dupont St., Unit 1)

Join artist Matt Nish-Lapidus to explore the creative potential of custom circuit board design. This intermediate workshop will explore translating a simple circuit from a breadboard to a full printed circuit board layout using the free KiCAD software. By the end of the workshop you will have a working PCB design that is ready for production, and the skills to integrate custom PCB’s into your own practice.

Matt Nish-Lapidus makes software, sounds, objects, and texts probing the myth that computers need to be useful rather than beautiful. He holds a H.BFA in New Media from Toronto Metropolitan University and a Master of Visual Studies in Studio Art from The University of Toronto. Matt’s interests lie in the poetics of computation and its proclivity to create meaningful relations through iteration and recombination, as well as how computation can be a source of identity and resistance. You can find Matt online and away-from-keyboard under various aliases and collaborations including emenel, and New Tendencies, må, and <blink>.

Join artist Marcella Moliner for an intro to experimental approaches to 3D animation.

Marcella Moliner is a Toronto-Based bilingual new media artist who hails from the Eastern Townships of Quebec. She thrives on creating experimental animations surrounding narratives that decipher her convoluted emotions. Following foundational training in Graphic Design at Dawson College, her undergraduate degree in Integrated Media: Expanded Animation at OCAD University fostered an interest in interdisciplinary research-creation methodologies, including traditional studio art practice, 3D animation and emerging digital techniques like rapid-prototyping, motion capture and photogrammetry.
