A*DESK has been offering since 2002 contents about criticism and contemporary art. A*DESK has become consolidated thanks to all those who have believed in the project, all those who have followed us, debating, participating and collaborating. Many people have collaborated with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. At A*DESK we have also generated work for over one hundred professionals in culture, from small collaborations with reviews and classes, to more prolonged and intense collaborations.

At A*DESK we believe in the need for free and universal access to culture and knowledge. We want to carry on being independent, remaining open to more ideas and opinions. If you believe in A*DESK, we need your backing to be able to continue. You can now participate in the project by supporting it. You can choose how much you want to contribute to the project.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

Create 3D real-time animations with Unity3D


The workshop focuses on the creation of 3D real-time animations/environments. It intends to provide technical knowledge and the dynamics of spontaneous creation using Unity3d is one of the most popular cross-platform game engines that supports 2D and 3D graphics.


The online workshop has been conceived and will be held by digital artist and industrial designer Lucas Gutierrez.


The workshop intends to provide technical knowledge and the dynamics of spontaneous creation, with techniques and tools that enable fluid and collaborative work amongst participants. focusing on visual art, generative images, real time animations and vjing techniques. It’s always good to have some initial ideas, questions, and topics that you want to experiment with during the seminar.

The workshop is divided into practical modules with specific exercises, and concludes with the realization of a presentation.

For those who don’t know it, Unity3d is one of the most popular cross-platform game engines that supports 2D and 3D graphics. Unity3d software is free to download.

Lucas Gutierrez (Argentina) is a digital artist and industrial designer based in Berlin. He has been engaged in various disciplines, from lectures, workshops and audiovisual performances to video art projects focused on the new paradigms of digital culture.

Deeply involved in the remix culture and real time AV session projects in which he blends influences of different contexts – from post-work anthropology to the abstract quotes of industrial design 3D modelling. His narrative is often quoting current social fears and dystopias, but mostly using the language of colourful, chaotic metaphysics.

His most recent talks and performances were in Sonar+D, MUTEK (Argentina/Mexico), ZKM – Karlsruhe or NYU Berlin. Exhibitions at The New Infinity, Berliner Festspiele, CTM / transmediale (Berlin). Lectures at UdK Berlin and Kunsthochschule Weißensee Berlin in the fields of real-time visualization, spatial motion graphics and visuals.
