Celebrating M.C. Escher: A Virtual Conversation with Austin Yarger, U-M Game Development Lecturer

Thursday, June 17 2021 at 7:00pm

In collaboration with our virtual run of M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity, now streaming as part of this year’s 2021 Virtual Science on Screen series, join as we go deeper into the technology of art and celebrate Escher’s 123rd birthday!

Register for our Zoom conversation on Thursday, June 17 at 7:00 p.m.

Our special guest Austin Yarger, Game Development Lecturer in the University of Michigan’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering and developer of the Michigan Game Studios database, will discuss modern XR technologies and how game design techniques offer us new, interesting ways to play with perception. We cannot help but wonder how much fun Mr. Escher would have had utilizing motion and interactivity!

Rent and stream the film before or after our conversation here.
