throughout the evening,” Poeschl said.
She also wants to let everyone know that First Thursday’s is in
desperate need of people who would like to join them as shuttle guides.

“We’re very excited about it. It’s along the lines that 7 Degrees is
all about, using multimedia art and utilizing the digital technology is
extremely exciting,” said Allison Ahlfeldt marketing Director.
Mugen has been working on this piece as a resident student artist at 7
Degrees for the past eight months. “3D STYLE” is an animated short
created using motion capture technology and computer generated images.
“It’s great for students to have a feel of having their first opening
in the real world,” said Ahlfeldt.
Mugen explained that she got the idea for this project because she
really likes basketball and looked at what she could do with that by
integrating motion and movement in a 3-D environment.
