Nail Polish for a Touch of Glamour: Make That Voxels Shine!

Workshop Intermediate

While radical and glitched aesthetics are quite in fashion these days, many might still struggle to get a more glamorous or expensive look out of their real-time renders. In the first part of this workshop Stefan Kraus ( is going to show how to create and animate data driven voxel architecture with instancing, CHOPs, SOPs and TOPs. In the second part Stefan is going to present best practices and dirty tricks to achieve different looks with MATs and TOPs and give insight into how he uses TouchDesigner as a production tool to record fluid audio and data-driven animations.

Stefan Kraus

MXZEHN The work of Berlin-based VJ artist and director Stefan Kraus (*1974) explores the fusion of media, space and performance. 
Emerging out of East Germany’s vivid electronic music scene, his work soon moved beyond the experimental club environment and into the world of art exhibitions, media festivals and theater performances across Europe. MXZEHN visuals are not a collage of prefabricated loops but the live performance of a – custom built – generative visual instrument. Parallel to his artistic career Stefan has been teaching interaction design at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar where he co-founded the Genius Loci Weimar festival, an annual competition for architectural projection mapping. Today Stefan is more than ever driven by the idea of the “Gesamtkunstwerk” – an artistic vision that completely immerses the audience.
