Short for ‘Jane Goes 3D’, JG3D is an early experiment in 3D animation by new media artist Jane Veeder. According to Veeder:  [JG3D]interprets my creative evolution from video art through 2D to 3D computer animation, integrating elements of personal history with theoretical issues relating to the current aesthetics of 3D computer animation.  Elements such as computer graphics “realism”, platonic ideals about the truth and beauty of numbers, and the mystique of digital power are mythologized into cartoonish concrete form and combined with an autobiographical, creative techno-history to produce a zero-gravity 3D animated theme-park ride.
