Randome Experiences

Visit the Experience Hall and head to the middle of the floor for this exciting visual experience. 

Produced by students and faculty from Drexel University’s Digital Media programs, this immersive projection experience is designed to welcome you to SIGGRAPH 2017’s Experience Hall with a collection of playful animations celebrating SIGGRAPH Conferences past and present. 
 
With an immersive canvas comprised of four 16’x10’ projection walls and a 16’ overhead projection dome, and a pallet of SIGGRAPH themed tools spanning fundamental pixels, shaders, and basic particle systems, through to today’s motion capture technologies and procedural creation systems, this collection of vignettes is presented in gratitude to all the contributors and contributions made throughout the history of SIGGRAPH Conferences that have enabled countless opportunities for students and digital artists to bring their imaginations and careers to life.
