We are excited to welcome back to the gallery artist Ben Coonley to present the sequel to “My First 3D”, a screening held at our previous location in 2013. For My First 3D – Part II, Coonley has invited more than 20 artists to screen the very first project they made using 3D animation and/or stereoscopic 3D. Works range from 5 seconds to 10 minutes in duration and include several world premieres.

“Learning to make 3D animation and stereoscopic 3D artworks forces artists to develop new relationships to space and novel approaches to composition. An artist’s first 3D artworks frequently turn out to be idiosyncratic, playful, raw, and personal.

My First 3D – Part II offers an autumnal cornucopia of deep space discoveries, hard-fought victories, self-effacing illusions, novelty, the z-axis (of evil), walk cycles, trial and error, immaterial surfaces, red and cyan (and red and green), seeing with two eyes at the same time, retinal rivalry, polygons, lenticularity, fashion forward cardboard eyewear, telepresence, vertices, vectors, planes, and the moon.” – BC
