Will be released on March 4th 12pm ET/11am CT at Art Blocks
The project focuses on how easily one assigns meaning to seemingly random combinations of blocks, giving them personality and creating emotional connections.
I was inspired by Ringers, in which people see animals and other characters. I wanted to amplify this quality, and the idea of sculptures made of blocks clicked! Endless combinations, funny characters, and my passion for cubes, voxels, and modular systems.
To make the sculptures, I used technique of hybrid voxel raymarching, so we can say, the sculptures are made of colored void in a reflected space. Some of them may seem impossible due to the lack of perspective, but sooner or later it all clicks! It helps to keep in mind that all shapes are symmetrical.
The script uses modern features of GPU so it's supposed to work only on desktop: Chrome, Firefox or Safari
Thanks to Shvembldr for encouraging me to develop this idea and sharing his artistic advice, to Piter Pasma for teaching his secret techniques and to Stranger for sharing his webgl expertize and supportting me all the way long. And, surely, I want to thank the team of Artblocks for their endless patience and support!
