My name is Zach Winegardner, and I am a digital artist dabbling in 3D media, animation, and interactive media. I recently completed my MFA at The Ohio State University in Digital Animation and Interactive Media. This site is where I document my research, professional work, and personal projects.
My research surrounds ideas of using digital media in tandem with critical making and play to examine things we are curious about to get a new, alternative look at them. My thesis focused on exploring historical paintings with digital tools and creating artifacts to provoke active observation and new dialogue.
I earned my undergraduate degree at Ohio University, where my interest and skill in the fields of fine arts, computer animation, and game design originated. I have always had a passion for making, and providing opportunities for anyone to learn and experience things in engaging ways.
