3D Design Technology and Virtual Environments

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Art & Science Series

Featured Speaker: MyungHee Sohn, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Textile & Apparel Management at University of Missouri – Columbia

3D draping simulation, digital textile printing, 3D body scanning and motion capture are changing the face of apparel management and product development. And they are the basis for a University of Missouri collaborative project between architectural studies and fiber art that allows students to present their work both digitally and virtually. Through the development of 3D virtual garments and the use of a 3D environment space, students are employing the latest in advanced technologies to present their pieces. Don’t miss this up-to-the-minute talk on the use of 3D technology in apparel design. The gallery talk complements Stephanie Liner’s Momentos of a Doomed Construct, in which the artist explores the relationship between people and their physical environment through the installation of her constructed orbs and egg-shaped sculptures.

Presented in conjunction with the Craft Alliance in Grand Center’s Exhibition, Stephanie Liner: Momentos of a Doomed Construct. For more on Momentos of a Doomed Construct, visit http://www.craftalliance.org/exhibitions/currentgc.htm
