Event description
Learn the basics of working in data in Unity by developing a simple, interactive application.

About this Event

Workshop Leader: Henrik Gieselmann

Description

New and evolving technologies allow and challenge designers to create new ways to communicate with an audience. Virtual and augmented reality technologies are slowly adopted more widely and even the web still evolves with technologies like WebGL and WebXR.

While planning and designing on paper is still essential, testing and experimenting is crucial while exploring interactive applications. Having to constantly rely on a tech team is neither satisfactory nor feasible. Thus, we will look at Unity to quickly and easily create prototype applications in the context of visualization.

While not everyone has to become an expert programmer, having a basic understanding will help to explore and communicate more clearly with other team members.

This workshop is aimed at people with little or no experience in programming.

Objectives

  • Learn the basics of working in Unity
  • Understanding the basics of programming—regardless of context, language or software
  • Understand the basics how to use data, ways to obtain it and how to visualize it
  • Finish with a simple interactive application

Content & Outcomes

The course will be presented as online lectures, which will introduce slowly advancing concepts. We will mix things up with hands-on sessions in which we will create a small 3D visualization together. Students will also get time to apply these techniques to their own little project.

At the end of the workshop students should have one or two simple interactive visualizations.

Required Tools, Materials, Equipment & Software

  • Unity
  • Visual Studio Code or Rider
  • 2D or 3D Content Creation Tool (Photoshop, Blender, etc...)

Fees

Participation in this workshop is free for students and 160NZD (approx. 95EUR / 115USD / 430PLN) for professionals. Have questions? Please email our event organiser at exhibition2021@motyf-festival.com.

Professional tickets are on sale now. Student tickets will go on sale March 31, 2021 at 9:00PM (NZDT) / 9:00AM (CET).

After some time working in the VFX industry he continued his studies at HS Mainz focusing on real-time and interactive graphics and finished his M.A. in 2020 while also working as 3D Artist / Developer for the News department at ZDF.

About Motyf 2021

This workshop is presented as part of the Motyf Festival 2021.

Motyf is an International Symposium and Media Art Exhibition that explores current and future forms of interactive and motion typography expressed through art, design, space and technology. The theme of the 2021 Festival is “Communicating Complexity” and will broadly explore how the elements and principles of visual, motion and interactive design can be leveraged within sequential, interactive, spatial or experiential works to authentically inform our understanding of society, elucidate complex concepts or aid in the communication of data. Please visit the Motyf 2021 Website for more information about our workshops, symposium and exhibition.
