Congratulations to Cheng Gu, Applied Computer Science graduate (’20), for having his work accepted into the 9th Annual Faculty Submitted Student Work Exhibit for SIGGRAPH2020, the world-renown annual conference showcasing computer graphics and interactive techniques.
Judy Kriger, Chair of Woodbury’s Animation program, submitted Cheng’s creation of a “Restaurant Rendering” designed in her 3D Animation course. Cheng’s work will be displayed at the virtual conference, Aug. 24-28, and on SIGGRAPH’s official YouTube channel.
According to SIGGRAPH, “When researchers, artists, and technologists collide, inspiration creates progress. SIGGRAPH conference content is selected by a jury of experts who find the most transformative advancements across computer graphics and interactive techniques.”
“I’m over the moon about Cheng’s work being accepted to SIGGRAPH, said Kriger, “This is a very competitive show with a double-juried selection process, so it’s a real coup for Woodbury to be recognized in this way. Cheng was an excellent student and has a very bright future ahead of him.”
