transcript of the video:
The continous innovation of 3d-software incorporates the illusionistic momentum of depictions according to central perspective and even pushes it further. Again and again it is aimed at the point where the user gets into the conflict of having to distinguish between the perception of reality and illusion.
The algorithmic character of the first construction in central perspective has already laid the fundament for a later digitalization.
The use of visualisation-software plays with this fact. Its usefulness lies in supporting perspectival thinking and seeing while perspective is digitally constructed. The human imagination changes because of the technical progress.
Several objects or bodies are assembled, illuminated and textured by internally proceeding algorithms in order to create the complex structure of an entity.
