Easter is just around the corner and if you’re over the age of eight, chances are you’re not fine tuning your egg hunting skills. That is, unless you’re in New York.
For the the first year since its inception in 2012, New York City is hosting “The Big Egg Hunt” – a tech driven twist on the classic children’s pastime, sponsored by jewelry mogul Fabergé. The charitable event is the world’s largest egg hunt and includes over 260 carefully crafted, larger than life egg sculptures, all integrated with beacon technology. Participants who download The Big Egg Hunt app, available via iTunes and Google Play, can “check in” when discovering an egg and receive information about the sculpture and artist. If that wasn’t enough, by logging in, participants are automatically entered to win one of three Fabergé keepsakes.
This past Wednesday, Psyop hosted its fourth Real-Time talk, featuring director/designer/artist David Lobser. Missed the talk? Read on, David shared some goodies…
David’s talk focused on approaching the practice of coding from an artist’s perspective. As a current graduate student in the NYU ITP program, David has hit pause on his successful career as a commercial director in order to dive deep into the world of parametric visuals.
