Rebecca Allen is an internationally recognized artist and pioneer in 3D computer graphics, human motion simulation and interactive media. Her work is inspired by the potential of advanced technology, the aesthetics of motion and the study of behavior.
While on leave from UCLA from 2003-2005, Rebecca served as Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Liminal Devices research group at Media Lab Europe in Dublin, Ireland. From 1996-2002 she directed the Emergence Project at UCLA, an Intel funded research effort involving artificial life, 3D virtual environments, augmented reality and unique multimodal interfaces.
I’ve been paying attention to the Design | Media Arts lectures although there are some lectures related to Arts and Sciences that look interesting too. The webcast archive goes back to 1999, so far everything I’ve watched has used Real Player.
