Coinciding with the beginning of the computer graphics movement in media, Dale’s career in motion design began in the late 1970's. this was the time when the industry transitioned from film and analogue to digital. the evolution of the Computer-Generated imagery (CGi) can provide us with lessons to where we are today, and where are going in the future. Here Dale will look at a number of projects along the path of development of motion graphics. this lecture will examine how this area of design has changed, and certainly how we design motion graphics today.

evolution of the Screen in Media: a Post-Screen Future?

WHeRe: aut university, Sir Paul Reeves (WG) Building, Level 4, Wa403. 55 Wellesley Street east, auckland.

No RSVP necessary, but spaces are limited so please arrive on time.

over the years, moving media has been associated with screens. We see media on televisions, computer displays, portable devices, and public screens / projections. New displays such as Google glasses and other digital processes are a window to a future that might be called ‘beyond screen’. in this new world, context and space are becoming increasingly important factors in design. this has been, and is, an evolutionary process. in this presentation, Dale will analyse this evolution, and he will present new design perspectives.

ad13 spatial design showrooms

date: 13th november 2013

venue: ww

Spatial Design presents a 'best of show' featuring innovative postgraduate design research ranging from urban interventions through advanced thinking in interiors to performance and installation projects. also featured is the graduating work of Bachelor of Design students (covering urban, interiors and performance projects) and the best of Years 1 & 2 in the undergraduate programme. the exhibition is arrayed over four levels of the Dadley Building (WW Building) at 9 Mount Street.

Displayed is a range of projects whose overarching theme is titled "intense Dwelling"—responses in fact designed to address the pressing difficulty of dwelling on the auckland isthmus. Rather than housing being just a matter of minimum dwelling sizes, mortgage rates, height limits, density calculations, planning maps and working out how close you can place people, dwelling means people making themselves at home and embodying all the complexity of life.

the exhibited projects explore dwelling as an intense thing: passionate, painful, obsessive, frustrating, hilarious, frightening, lush, awkward, focused, distracting. they draw energy and inspiration from the everyday occurrences of city life—being packing into a busy train in rush hour, soaking in the liquid light of sunset, burying yourself in the basement of a library, blind dates, roaring crowds, fuming heat and livid frost, claustrophobia, invasive weeds, salty breezes, historic offences, vertigo, depression, friendship, working out, birth, comedy, tragedy and farce.

Building further on the question of intense city living and a commitment in Spatial Design to design a better auckland, we also present joint industry projects undertaken at Grafton Gully, Newmarket, and Wynyard Quarter.
