Assignment: Virtual Sculpture

Thing made of things
Artfully arrange a given selection of assets from the game Everything. Use these objects as building blocks to create an object that in the process renders the original objects secondary (but not necessarily unimportant).
It doesn’t have to be realistic nor to follow the law of physics! Play with scale and forms, it can be surreal and impossible.


Change background and ground color by changing the materials
Stay within the round area in the scene


The delivery format is 1 to 3 still images showing no interface elements.
The screenshot must be taken from Unity’s play mode through script provided.
Hit play > Move camera with WASD + QE + right mouse to orbit.
By default screenshots are taken with the space key
Screenshots will appear in the assets folder under “screenshots”.
The first time you may have to right click on the assets panel and hit refresh.

You can also take a video with the camera rotating around the sculpture.
To record HD videos follow this tutorial
The recordings end up in the project folder, the same where the assets folder is. NOT in assets.

Post them along with a title.

Grading Criteria

You made a new thing out of things
There is attention to form, color, silhouettes
