Photogrammetry and 3D Scanning Workshop

Photogrammetry and 3D Scanning Workshop

By Carlos Martorell (Shoeg)

Carlos Martorell, sound and visual artist known as Shoeg, teaches a workshop on photogrammetry and 3D scanning in the context of his new exhibition Ecosystems @ORBIT, which can be seen from December 21st at the orbit of virtual universe Planet LEV .

The workshop will be structured in two practical and on-site sessions at Laboral Ciudad de la Cultura, where we will discover the techniques behind the artworks that make up his new digital show. In the first session, we will learn the process of capturing and creating a 3D model using photogrammetry and mobile scanning of real objects, to help us understand which are the best strategies to obtain optimal results. In the second one, we will use open source 3D tools to process, clean and optimize the models, and leave them ready to use in other digital environments with Meshlab.

About Carlos Martorell:

The project of sound and visual artist Carlos Martorell, Shoeg, affects the symbiotic relationship between the individual and technology. With the latter, he experiments (recycles it and develops new tools) to create different perceptions of reality where movement, image and sound are interrelated.

Shoeg’s visual discourse (which has several albums and published EPs) has its origin in virtual worlds that are based on 3D scans and video game engines like Unity.

Laboral Ciudad de la Cultura.
