What attracted you to magical realism and dealing within the 3D VR area?
As a former photographer who used a digicam as a tool for image-making, I ask myself questions similar to what distinguishes between a picture made by a digicam and the one rendered utilizing a extremely photo-realistic 3D software program? Is there a distinction between a reminiscence that’s lived, and the one that’s solely imagined or dreamt of? My immigration expertise is the central motive behind my curiosity in visible arts, and it fascinates me to find how the unconscious thoughts performs a job in the way in which we dissect our id and previous with a view to perceive our current existence.
