Today marks a much-welcomed break from the luxurious interiors of glossy magazine pages, courtesy of David Zamanov, our October 2021 3D Artist of the Month! His approach to architectural visualization is inherently artistic and expressive, his interior design deliberately counterbalances the decadent and gaudy style of our times. For his 'Authentica Variations', an eclectic blend of minimalism, Gypset and ancient Chinese philosophy, David forgoes pomp in favor of comforting simplicity.
In our interview, David talks about feeling alien, founding his own studio, and the ethics of minimalism.

The relationship between architecture and nature is a conundrum as old as time. When Iranian CG artist Hamid Reza Goli encountered the site of environmental degradation, he was immediately inspired to counteract. Together with his wife, and fellow architect, he envisioned a structure that would revive the barren space and harmonically incorporate its lush surroundings. The result, the ‘Koi House’, is a blend of contemporary architecture and traditional Far Eastern aesthetics, bridging the gap between past and present, and pointing to a reconciliatory future.
Check out our interview to find out more about Hamid Reza, his artistic vision, and the making of the ‘Koi House’.

While Iranian architect and visualizer Tina Tajaddod herself humbly declines the label of 3D artist, her soulful and intimately personal approach to CGI left us no choice but to select her as our September 2021 '3D Artist of the Month'!

Although a design of individual creative expression, she nonetheless invites the viewer to seek refuge in her 'Quiet Place'.

In 2020, the Chicago History Museum partnered with the filmmaker, Geoffrey Alan Rhodes, to produce a virtual reality experience of the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. The centerpiece of the experience would be a recreated ride on the original Ferris Wheel using historical photographs, taken through the windows of the passenger cars more than 120 years ago, matched with VR drone photography above the site, and a 3D animated recreation of the wheel and the car interior.
This case study describes the project, the process, and the essential role of RebusFarm’s generous support.
