Me and YOUnity and Everything I Know: An Introduction to Unity3D for Installation and Animation
A workshop with Mat Lindenburg & Jadda Tsui
Part of the PARTICLE + WAVE Media Arts Festival

Location: EMMEDIA – 351 11 Ave SW
Saturday, February 4, 2017 @ 12 – 2PM
FREE admission
Limited seats, register with particlewave@emmedia.ca

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to Unity, a free, cross-platform, well-supported, 3D and 2D engine used primarily for games but increasingly being explored for its potential for creative coding, art installations, animation, and interactive experiences. Mathew Lindenberg and Jadda Tsui will be giving a crash course in how to use Unity via the creation, lighting, animating, and scripting of a simple scene. Topics covered will range from getting around in the UI, understanding the entity/component system, how to bring in external resources, how to build and share your scene, and how to make a crude facsimile of your boss and launch them from a catapult. They’ll also be sharing resources and scripts and various things collected and created during the process of making YOU ARE HERE which will be performed on February 4, 2017 as part of the PARTICLE + WAVE Media Arts Festival.

Participants are recommended to come with a laptop containing Unity, updated to the latest version, to get the most out of the workshop. To download Unity, go to: https://unity3d.com/

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:

Mathew Lindenberg is an artist interested in integrating systems and simulations with narrative to explore new ways of telling stories and reaching audiences. Whether his penchant for putting hapless AI characters into overwhelming situations came from a childhood spent shepherding ant colonies, or an unresolved ego-maniacal god complex, is still undetermined. He received his BFA from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2014.

Jadda Tsui is a media artist working to explore various ways to communicate and generate investigations into how her perception of the world may or may not be similar to that of those around her. She is currently enrolled in undergraduate studies at the Alberta College of Art + Design.
