“Virtual Cameras and General-purpose Game Engines: On Hybrid and Programmable Aesthetics of 3D Real-time Environments”
The thesis investigates the affordances of emerging software ecologies (e.g. game engines, content creation software) for designing new types of real-time, CGI-based content and 3D environments for art, entertainment and commercial purposes. The study is based on industry experimental content and authored new media artworks.
