The online 3D Modeling Workshop offers compelling and mind-opening lectures and workshops on the relevant fields of global importance. During the course, students will be introduced to 3D aesthetic approaches for representing the inner structures of the brain, as well as will explore the following topics:
- 3D modeling of molecules based on the data of DNA and amino acids
- The role of molecules in our biological behavior
- The use of psychological theories in artworks
- The guide to 3D programs (eg. Blender) for digital projects
- Creating your own NFT artwork
We invite students, young artists, and junior researchers interested in a mix of digital art psychology and biology to join the school. The course does not include programming yet students are required to have laptops or desktops for 3D graphics. The working language is English with a possibility of choosing Spanish.
R.I.S.O.B 3D Workshop
R.I.S.O.B stands for Representing the Inner Structures Of the Brain. During this course, you will master essential skills for 3D modeling and learn how to use such open-source programs as Blender and MakeHuman to create an artistic portrayal of the internal designs of the brain in digital space using the available information in different genetic and protein databases. The course is supplemented with a prologue to the molecular biology of the brain and an analytical psychology approach to the human brain. At the end of the course, students will present their projects at a digital online show and will have the chance to turn their work into an NFT.
