Thomas Tucker on Virtual Reality
Join us Friday at 12PM to listen to Thomas Tucker, the SOVA Associate Professor and Chair of Creative Technologies MFA, talk about virtual reality.
Thomas Tucker received his BFA from Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he was a Joan Mitchell MFA grant recipient. He has been evolving complex drawings into animation/kinetic sculptural pieces using 3D software and sound design for over a decade.
Prof. Tucker has been involved in many projects including: dealing with body mechanics using motion capture, using technology to create a responsive virtual heritage environment in collaboration with art historians, using animation to describe internal organ movements in collaboration with bimolecular imaging specialists, helping city councilmen visualize new traffic simulations and designing serious games.
