Berlin-based KISDtalk speaker Chris Hoffmann will talk about 3D CG Design finding its own language as a medium. Trying to find ways to overcome the indirectness of the medium and its interfaces. To make way for more expressive and emotional creations. Going away from the representation of reality in CG towards a more autonomous way of expression that also plays with its flaws and quirkiness.
He will also go on a detour into the world of 3D characters. And how we can free them from certain rules to see how far away from the figurative we can we push them while still keeping them relatable.
After spending a few years at Parasol Island and taking a detour to study art at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy , Chris Hoffmann now works at Zeitguised where he is responsible for concepts, 3D Design and research.
The talk will be held in English language.
The KISDtalks are a public lecture series on relevant perspectives of design. They give space for an open-minded and profound analysis and reflexion of the manifold issues of design, culture, society, technology, and different scientific disciplines. Topics are interdisciplinary, integrative, and provide internationality by domestic and international speakers.
The talks always take place on the specified dates on a Tuesday at 5:30 pm in the conference room 11 at KISD. The 60-90 minutes-long presentations with “Q&A“ are a public event and free of charge.
