Elective

Description

In this special interdisciplinary subject, students are given the rare opportunity to create and visualise motion capture data for exploration in state of the art visualisation facilities such as UTS Data Arena – a cutting edge 360-degree immersive 3D cinematic data visualisation arena.

This subject is delivered in block mode as a process-led lab where students work with a contemporary dance choreographer to capture live performance data. This data is then used to develop a set of 2D and 3D animation assets and other graphic representations that explore the highly immersive properties of the UTS Data Arena. Students create and conceptually plan the arrangement of animated media in response to a design brief that explores the inter-relationship of 'territory' and 'intruder'. Student work is demonstrated in the Data Arena providing a unique opportunity to experience data visualisation on a grand cinematic scale.

Students build upon the fundamentals of cinema montage, movement and editing to understand and explore new types of movement representation in a 360-degree screen space. In doing so, students realise new graphic forms that reflect, exaggerate, materialise and change the spatial representation of data movement.
