In this workshop we will leverage exciting AI technology to recreate 3d space by capturing images and light. This technique allows us to create realistic scenes where light moves and shifts organically. We will begin with using this method in it's conventional form, from these tests we will explore how to manipulate the technology to create unique 3d environments and fields of light.
