Lamps

Posted on May 12, 2014 in Animation

I’ve had these images by photographer Rune Guneriusson on my radar for a few years now. His combination of vintage lamps with improbable settings is magical and mysterious and reminds me a lot of Lewis Carroll – I wish I could step into one of his environments and find out where these paths of lamps are trying to take me. Instead, a little while ago, I was trying out Maya particles for the first time and decided to re-create these lamps in 3D, and actually get one step closer to finding out where they lead. It was a very rudimentary particle experiment combined with some compositing (AE). The textures are all pretty low-tech and unpolished, but as a sketch I thought it was fun.
