STATEMENT

 

Patrick Gauvin completed a MA in Education after working in the field of computer graphics for television and cinema. He is currently a PhD student in the Individualized Program (INDI) at Concordia University while teaching 3D animation and creativity at Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) in Montréal.

 

Patrick aspires to participate in the authentication of 3D animation as a sensitive and artistic medium. He wants to foster creativity in his digital practices by incorporating walking and physical world discoveries as part of the methodology. He explores fieldwork through photogrammetry (the process of acquiring 3D models from 2D photos) where serendipity is central to revealing a continuity between digital artifacts and physical landscapes and an extension between public and individual spaces.
