Video Game Graphics with the Advanced Media Lab

Dream of making your own video game? Join the Advanced Media Lab from NC State University College of Design in a day of game content creation. Workshop participants will create their own graphics in an interactive game, and then adjust how elements in the game behave. Students will get access to their finished game after the session.

Held in conjunction with ID:ENTITY Self Perception + Reality, currently on view at CAM Raleigh, exhibiting artists from the Advanced Media Lab with lead this workshop. The Advanced Media Lab at the North Carolina State University College of Design leverages an array of technologies to create images, animation, and interactive projects. ID:ENTITY is a group exhibition which explores the complex relationship between the “self” and the world. Digital technologies are radically altering the traditional ways in which we relate to each other, our social spaces, and even ourselves. Artists in ID:ENTITY engage in a highly technical, visual dialogue that includes: interactive surfaces, Microsoft Kinect™ technology, and dynamic digital wall projections.
