Gaming student, Eric Guadara, teams up with LIU Post Sculpture Professor Winn Rea to produce industry standard components for his game, Highlandia, using the Art Department uPrint SE 3D printer.
Gaming student Eric Guadara teamed up with Sculpture Professor Winn Rea to bring his game, Highlander, to life. Eric wanted to transform his cardboard prototype to a fully realized production standard game for his exhibit at Metatopia 2015, the New Jersey Gaming Expo in November 2015.
Guadara found the solution in 3D printing. Using digital modeling programs he engineered three-dimensional components, ran test prints with the help of Prof. Rea on the Art Department uPrint SE 3D printer, and adjusted parameters so that pieces fit together three-dimensionally as well as worked ergonomically.
The process of visualizing, modeling, testing, and perfecting his game components using 3D printing will elevate Guadara’s game head and shoulders above the competition at the Metatopia Game Expo. Now all that remains is to see how discerning gamers rate his game–Good luck, Eric!
Open call to submit and participate in a Concrete to Data collaborative project. Prior to the launch of the physical exhibition in the Steinberg Museum of Art participating artists were invited to generate remixes and riffs of the original concrete to data logo. The purpose of the project is to build a new visual repository of stylistic variety by using the text from the show’s title. The submitted works will form and build a collaborative online gallery on the exhibition website. The public is invited to participate. That’s right, we want you to submit. This is a call for submissions, do you want to riff, remix or reinterpret the Concrete to Data logo? Your submission can be static or animated. It can be manually generated or digital. This process and execution is open to your interpretation.
Send your piece via e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to the gallery.
In the near future it is also our intention to show the remix gallery publicly offline in a variety of ways.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
