Surface Incident is a group of images that explore sense of place and the city, envisioned as a series of fabricated spaces—modeled in 3D and refigured through texture-mapping, lighting and framing. Surface Incident uses the visual language of cinema to investigate the shifting urban environment. These images link physical surroundings and psychological state, and imagine a de-historicized urban space in which surface is everything.
The images below are the first in the series of images for Surface Incident. The underlying forms were modeled, texturemapped and lit in Cinema4D and were rendered using a different lens values for depth-of-field. In some cases, multiple images have been rendered from one model, using variations of lighting, POV and lens.
