Assembly of the Lego set 10179 from Star Wars Ultimate collector series in stop motion in 3d. Created using 3ds max and V-ray. A very long work over 3 years, modelling all the pieces by myself. and rendered frame by frame.
Edit: Thanks everibody for all the coments, i'm surprised!

A two day seminar to introduce a new PhD course- Cybernetics, Architecture & Robotics, and discuss issues relevant to contemporary theory and practice.
AIMS OF COURSE
This inter-disciplinary course aims to provide an introductory grounding to Cybernetics, identifying
its philosophical and theoretical foundations together with its core concepts, methodologies
and principle models. It also aims to identify the relevance and limits of the application
of these resources to these design disciplines.
The discipline of Cybernetics provides concepts for the study of complex systems and their
organisation. It therefore holds relevance for the both architecture and robotics as these disciplines
are concerned with the design of complex systems that function within broader environments.
As researchers from these disciplines increasingly look to each other for design
methods, means and applications, it is timely to ask and test whether cybernetics can provide
a common vocabulary through which to promote and foster enriching and collaborative dialogue.
The course is structured around two parts: two introductory course days and two seminar days.
The course days will introduce the concepts, engage itnerdisciplinary exchange and allow participants
to prepare contributions to the seminar. The seminar invites leading theoreticians and
practiitioners to present current research as well as participant presentations and discussion.
Day 1 Cybernetics, Materiality and Embodiment
Morning: Rolf Pfeifer, Omar Khan, Ted Kreuger
Afternoon: PhD presentations
Cybernetics provides generalized concepts that can be understood as aiming to eradicate the
distinction between the biological and the artificial, or the ‘animal and machine’ in Weiner’s
terms. In doing so, cybernetics focuses on abstract principles of organization, control and communication
independent of material details and composition. How then, do the concepts of cybernetics
hold relevance for practices that are dependant upon the consideration of materiality
and material systems?
