»Alone In The Dark«
A research for aesthetics based on a combination of flat images and three dimensional virtual objects.
Inspired by early 3D computer games which due to slow processing power had to combine 3D and 2D display technique, the interest focuses fake haptic qualities of virtual objects and the display of hand crafted material in virtual space.
»Alone In The Dark« is not only the name of an early 90ies survival horror video game, but also describes the kind of feeling I have by looking at certain pseudo-3D aesthetics from the earlier days of computer generated images.
