I took my interest in the lakeside cities, such as Chicago
or San Diego. For me, the images of skyscrapers mirrored in water appeared
to be even stronger than the real images of the city.
A sky seems to be even
more important when seen reflected in water. I tried to render mirrored image
of the city on the picture laying on the floor.
The regular rhythm of the city architecture can be best rendered through the
use of computer graphics.
The effect of distortion (created by water) reminds
me of the regularity of both the structure of each separate building and the
relationship between all of them, which make up a city.
Lake water gives the
tired traveller seeking a rest a mirror image of a dream house or a deja vue
experience coming from the similarity of urban settlements.
The computer is a perfect tool to find this connectiveness. By manipulating
with it one can find that kind of illusion (by the use of pattern and texture).
