GaMeRS look beyond controller
Andrew Clausen, a senior from Dwight studying electronic systems technology, third from left, shows members of Game Mechanics Research Studio, or GaMeRS, how to use a computer program Tuesday in the Applied Sciences and Arts building. Clausen, RSO president, said the club is for students who are interested in game design and development. “When we meet, we’re making games,” Clausen said. “Making games is not the same kind of fun as playing a video game where you can high score. I find it to be far more satisfying.” The group is open to students of any field of study. Laura Robert-Weekender
Melding meaning with metal
Ben Dory, a graduate student in art from Lawrence, Kan., works on a piece Tuesday in Pulliam Hall. The piece is one of a series created from a combination of techniques that include metalworking and bookbinding. Dory said he made the pieces as a statement about the rising use of digital books after he learned Encyclopedia Britannica was ceasing print operations. The Glove Factory will display first- year graduate art students’ work Friday, and second-year graduate art students’ work will be shown March 1.
