Idea. Implentation. Installation. Invitation

In the past few months I was fortunate to be a part of a very effective team. We were given the task to organise and host the annual graduate exhibition for the Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning at the University of Sydney. Our task may sound simple, but we were ambitious, eager to re-invent the norm, to innovate new ways to showcase student works, to embrace the specificity in their design studios, and to reaffirm the identity of Sydney University to the wider community.

During these many weeks I took on the role of digital media, or any materials, equipment, structure and layout concerning the use of projections. Many aspects of these roles involved liaising with Matthew Storey (Technical Services and Asset Manager), Iakovos Amperidis (Tin Sheds Gallery Manager), Julius Dimataga (Building Attendant / Loans Officer), Leslie George (IT Operations and Liaison Manager, ICTC) & Christina Rita (External & Professional Engagement Officer) in the later stages of implementation. Of course this was done under the guidance of our unit coordinator Dr. Sandra Löschke.

Best Rendering since the Third and the Seventh?

Witness the power of procedural texture mapping on Clarisse iFX

A trip through an electric desert, Dry Lights unfolds in an imagined environment of cacti and canyons, moving from hidden caves to lonely cliffs along pulsating rivers of light. This experimental film lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes. Like an imaginary city flickering in the dark, the lights beacon fragments of vague memories - faded moments, experiences, and topographies. A world in an erratic state of flux that seems to evade any grasp of clear control plays host to constantly alternating physical and mental landscapes.

Tutorial Ideas?

Hi everyone,

First of all I hope everyone is having a wonderful time, where-ever you may be. It has taken me a couple of weeks to piece together some of my works into a website (terrible organisation skills I know), but hopefully the result is somewhat acceptable. I have recently become involved with a lovely architecture community at 3nta and they suggested that I would help with managing their social media platforms as well as to make rendering tutorials for Photoshop/Cinema/3ds Max Vray etc.. 

I need ideas.

Let's start off with something short and simple, it could be anything involving graphic design, photography editing, composition, photo manipulation in Photoshop, any questions you might have, any skills you want simple explanations for... I certainly don't claim to know it all, and I will expect to be doing my fair share of research and hopefully be able to digest and simplify the wealth of information out there. Anyway, feel free to comment below, I am open to ideas.

Meanwhile, I will be having fun playing around with Forest Pack on 3ds max (test render in thumbnail)

Look forward to seeing your replies.

James
