Jeff Case: Nang Yai: 3D Shadow Art Bookmark and Share

Jul 16

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery
Free

Nang Yai is an ancient Thai art form dating back to the 1400s that uses shadow puppetry to retell cultural narratives with intricately designed animal hides, a bonfire and a white screen. Jeff Case, CCU associate professor in the Department of Visual Arts, is best known for his work in cutting-edge technology such as rapid prototyping and 3D scanning and printing. Case's work interprets this ancient art using modern methods. His stereographic depictions of mythical Thai scenes are 3D rendered and 3D printed, with shadows cast from light carefully harnessed within a printed globe. 

Gallery reception and lecture: Thursday, Aug. 23, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
