Last Wednesday, we went to the Victoria & Albert Museum and look at the collections of computer-generated images closely. Then I am kind of interesting in a printing image called “Sculpture Simulation”, created by Paul Brown. Actually, it’s a 3-D computer simulation of a free-standing sculpture, digital inkjet print on paper. I think this piece of image is powerful, because although the ring sculptures keep still always, when the position of light change, the shape and the position of shadows will change. For the purpose of observation, I built a similar model scene through the 3D software.
As shown in the figure, the shape of the shadow changes because the light source is constantly changing. The shadows depict the characteristics of the actual object in an exaggerated, abstract way. So maybe I can do something related to shadow.
