Final Animations

A compilation of final animations for ARIL 421 for your viewing pleasure. I had to replace some music as it got flagged as copyrighted immediately after upload. Piano is probably the easiest to match…

Flocking Reynolds

In class today I talked about flocking. Someone implemented Craig Reynolds flocking in WebGL. Watch it here - be a little patient, may take some time to load.

Call: Physics and Art Exhibition

From: Ashwin Vaidya:

"The 5th Physics and Art photo event will be held on May 2nd in University Hall in conjunction with the RAUL's Showcase for teaching and learning. I am soliciting photographs that highlight art and science and the interconnnectedness of the two (more details are provided in the attached flyer). Selected entries will be showcased at the exhibition and also online and awards will be given out to the top entries."

The nexus between Science and Art has always interested me, maybe some of you have interesting images you can submit!

Electronic Theater

We have a busy month at out local ACM SIGGRAPH chapter! Here's another event worth checking out, a great opportunity to see high quality animation:

On Friday, March 14, 2014, NYC ACM SIGGRAPH and the NYIT Fine Arts Department are proud to present a very special screening of the SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 Electronic Theater. This event will start at 7:00PM and take place in NYIT's Auditorium On Broadway at 1871 Broadway (between 61st and 62nd Streets.) Admission to this event is $10 for Non-Members and $5 for Non-Member Students. (NYIT faculty, staff and students can attend for free.)
The SIGGRAPH Asia Electronic Theater is one of the world's most prestigious film and video extravaganzas, showcasing dazzling and innovative imagery in invited and submitted works selected by a distinguished jury of computer graphics experts and specialists. We are particularly fortunate to be screening a special version of the Electronic Theater from the conference that was held in Hong Kong, China, in December 2013. This is an extraordinary opportunity for anyone that was not able to attend SIGGRAPH Asia 2013. Admittance to a single CAF Screening at the conference costs quite a bit so the admission for this event is a tremendous bargain.
