Anniversary of Madiba's passing sees Golden Key member launch workshop to introduce youth to 3D technology and SPARK-a-Change

Anniversary of Madiba's passing sees Golden Key member launch workshop to introduce youth to 3D technology and SPARK-a-Change

This past Monday UCT graduates , Golden key member Matthew Westaway and Gustaf swart  held a workshop on connecting art and science using 3D technology at Norma Road primary school in Athlone. Being the anniversary week of the passing of Nelson Mandela it was only appropriate to use Nelson Mandela as a medium to illustrate this connection.   

The workshop begun with sculpturer Right Mukore from Montebello Design Centre teaching the learners how to sculpt a bust of Nelson Mandela from wood. Gustaf and Matthew then demonstrated to the learners how to create a 3D model of the bust using photographs (structure from motion) and how to get a 2D line drawing (edge detection) from a photograph of the bust. 

The learners then got involved by each taking turns on a smart phone to take a photograph of the bust and generate an edge drawing of the photograph using a mobile application Gustaf and Matthew had written. Each learner then printed this edge drawing and using their artistic expression created their own image of Nelson Mandela .

To further the continuing of the legacy of Madiba, the learners learnt a new skill-set which will make them more entrepreneurial and keep them up to date with the changing technological environment.
