Experiments in the void
The works in this collection delve into the color, composition, lighting, and rendering possibilities that are available in a digital and three-dimensional realm. Each piece serves as an exploration within the immersive and vast canvas of 3D space.
As if gazing through an inter-planetary rover's viewfinder, I envisioned a rocky, multi-colored planet's surface. This planetary inspiration drove me to delve into generating ecosystems. With multiple iterations, my focus shifted from surface landscapes to something more microscopic.
Phantoms of Surrealism
With a desert backdrop reminiscent of surrealist masterpieces, I attempted to craft my own desert spectacles. Inspired by Sheila Legge's photography, I aimed to generate dreamy visions that resonate with the same motifs.
My aspiration was to immerse the viewer in enchanting spirals, akin to journeying into a storm's core. The outcome yielded chilling and somewhat ominous results—less of a jovial Christmas morning, and more of an icy maelstrom.
The intricate patterns and hues found in MRI and CT scans offer an interesting insight into visualizing our brain's intricate dance with emotions and biology. Here, I explored this connection attempting to bring to life the concepts: inventio, dispositio, elocutio, memoria, and pronuntiatio.
In my artistic explorations, I've discovered the fascinating visuals from layering uneven lines in 2D or 3D spaces. While some view the visual noise as unwanted, I enjoy the intricate patterns it produces at varying scales—forming rich textures and unpredictable visuals.
Children of the Night
Perhaps guided by otherworldly spirits, I sought to capture the essence of Victorian gothic tales and spectral apparitions to conjure my own phantasmagoria, reminiscent of vintage horror theaters and magic lanterns.
