The Tate link appears broken.



Great find by the way, cheers! Only 8 quid per session too. I think I'll pop along I reckon.

9 companies on the poster. Everybody who is speaking is "industry". And you start your post with "Following the phenomenal success".

Who represents the "Art" side of the debate at your seminar?

These letures were born from a conversation in which it was decided that, for various reasons, the contemporary arts community and the general public at large seem oblivious to the enormous creative potential present in the world of 3D. The idea behind these lectures is to open discussion between the various disciplines and allow us to explore the future direction of computer graphics as an art form, away from a commercial environment.

If you are an artist, or in the fine arts 'industry' I would welcome you to come and join the debate.

thanks,
Zissou

P.S. If you can suggest 'artists' who know enough about computer graphics and 3D and would be willing to speak on the subject, I would be happy to consider them for future events.

Although the lecturers themselves are some of the most highly regarded professionals within their speific disciplines, the idea is for the audience to be made up of a broad a base as possible - whether you're a seasoned pro or have no prior understanding of Computer graphics the lectures are designed to open discussion on the various topics surrounding digital creativity while the afternoon workshops are aimed at allowing the general public and the more classical contemporary arts community to meet some of the finest 3D artists around and get hands-on with some of the latest digital creation tools - from powerful workstations using Wacom's latest Cintiq tablets to software such as Maya, Mudbox and ZBrush and even the chance to check out some new 3D printing technologies.

I'll personally be going on day two and looking forward to it.

I thought it sounded very interesting, plus im up for an escape award the next day so i wanted to scope out the tate modern a bit and try to make myself feel a bit more comfortable! :D


Is there any news on how busy/popular the lecture is going to be overall?
