Remember that movie Her starring Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Spike Jonze. If you haven't seen the movie, please do watch it first. I just really appreciate the direction of photography by Hoyte van Hoytema.
Six N. Five is an art direction and imagery studio based in Barcelona, Spain. They shared an experimental 3D art mixed with architecture titled 'the Japanese Garden' series. It's a full CGI illustration series about a culture that is truly fascinating to me. For those, you know me is fully knowledgeable of my love for Japan and everything that comes through this modern and contemporary traditions. First of all, just by looking through this series, they all look like photographs. At a closer look, what's causing a plausible illusion to me is how the shadow reflects the light on the floor and the walls. It's quite impressive, check it out!
Inspired by the Japanese gardens and their architecture, amazed by the cleanliness and beauty they have, we took all the references that we collected for a while, and we tried to make our interpretation of this.
