Pratt Institute begins development of virtual world research lab

Pratt Institute's Department of Computer Graphics & Interactive Media (CGIM) has begun the development of a Research Lab to explore the development of virtual worlds, stereoscopic 3D imaging, and other outside-the-box possibilities.

CGIM is also pleased to announce that Professor Claudia Herbst joined our fulltime faculty. Prof. Herbst's previous position was at the Walt Disney Company, where she trained the company's computer graphics artists.

In a cooperative initiative with the Department of Media Arts, CGIM instituted a new Digital Ink & Paint elective last Spring, in a brand new lab adjoining a new "traditional" cel animation lab. Digital Ink & Paint is the modern digital equivalent of traditional "Cel" Animation production.
