Remastering

Every now and then we revisit old work and add something new to it. In this instance, I started to remaster material originally designed in 2017. Intersections was a series of black and white line art. It features repeating line patterns with slight variations, that when overlap, causes a larger pattern to emerge. The original was a cloned vector illustration, which was subsequently redone in Blender for a sense of depth and shadow. This time, as take three, also made with Blender, just uses improved methodology. We swap meshes for parametric curves in a single model. In return we get improved arcs and better scaling for close ups, and generally improved flexibility. We can go nuts with upping the render quality and even add colour with little additional effort. The fun part is moving the camera around the object to find interesting frames to render.

Nodes and Rays

Blender geometry nodes make generating arrays of objects relatively quick. Compositing nodes add that extra wow to the whole scene. Applying both make generating colourful video clips a breeze.

Strands into the void

What can you say about psychedelic looking convergent lines? If you tweak the light sources, material reflectivity, and perspective then you will get something like this. Strands into the void, or out of the void, whichever you prefer.

Bottles and curves

Fast moving consumer goods such as beverages are commonly packaged in bottles. Showing a bottle that represents a product is fundamental to promoting and selling such products. There’s no mystery there. But where do those perfect and stylised images come from?

My door is ajar

I have a problem with a door, and it is my door.

Specifically, my office door bores me, and so I decided to decorate it with something eye catching. I logged into Officeworks and ordered a customised print of Intersections2. The dimensions of the print are close enough to cover most of the door surface.

Hello 2022

It’s moments like this that make me wonder why I don’t have screenshots every time that I see something interesting.

3orbits

This three orbit loop was inspired by I don’t know what, because as I am writing this blurb nine months had already elapsed. In the interest of completeness, here it is.

Hello world!

IGSIFY images are mostly abstract and vague. They can be transformed without compromising their essence. It may not matter how you stretch, flip, layer, or remix them. For these reasons they make ideal backgrounds for promotional collateral or decorating.
