Infinity Room 1.1b

I started writing a bunch of stuff about this and decided it was to boring, so I deleted it.
I like this better.

Adendum

Infinity Room 1.1

These are images that got left off my last post for some reason. It is the same room and same spheres with a different camera angle. 

I think the composition is not quite right.


Cropped!
Amazing what a crop can do.
When I take live photos, I frame them so cropping is unnecessary, because I did it already!

Infinity Room 1.1

Polka Dots

Same room, but different material on the spheres. One of Yayoi Kusama's infinity rooms contains large life-size glass golden squashes decorated with vertical rows of black polka dots and contrasting black stems with gold polka dots. Many of her other pieces were polka dotted and very playful in appearance.
About polka dots in Ms Kusama’s own words:
‘Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos. Polka dots are a way to infinity. When we obliterate nature and our bodies with polka dots, we become part of the unity of our environment.’
Polka dots represent love.

This is my second experiment of an infinity room.

Technical stuff for Blender heads

The cube's material is glossy Beckmann with 0 roughness
and the spheres material is Voronoi intensity node
 run through a black and yellow color ramp node.
Both spheres are arrayed around two different empties.
One arrayed as a ring and the other as a spiral.
    Four area lamps are placed inside the cube
with their cast shadows and multiple importance buttons switched off.


Love is a source of bliss and infinity.

Infinity Room 1

Infinity Room

We went to the Art Museum to see Yayoi Kusama's exhibition of Infinity Mirror Rooms, which inspired me to make my own infinity mirror rooms with Blender 3D software. The interior walls of Ms. Kusama's rooms are lined with mirrors and sometimes the floor and/or the ceiling.Inside the rooms are her sculpted objects which are reflected in the mirrors ad infinitum. 

My first room scene consists of spheres, lamps and a highly reflective cube. The cube is the mirrored room and the spheres are my simple sculptures. The lamps are... well you need some light, otherwise the room is pitch black and there are no reflections.

Here are photos of my first infinity room.

 Fall out
with all the angels
I walk on breaking glass
Lay down,
enjoy the silence
I melt into the ground

Snowflake Seventeen




One day,
The snow began to fall,
And slowly, inch by inch,
Covered up the earth.
'Til finally,
The top of the tallest building,
Was lost beneath a powdered sea,

 As quiet as a shadow's grave...

"Last Song"

Light and Colour Physics of Snow

Snow appears to be coloured white, because it reflects all the colour frequencies of the visible light spectrum, which when combined equally, is white. While that is the colour we see in snow, individual ice crystals are actually translucent, like rainbows.
