These images are stills from a 3D movie called Upending
created by the groundbreaking digital artist's collective OpenEnded Group
premiered at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center
at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in March 2010.
The origins of these images may surprise you. For example, the tree and tree swing images were captured from the real world in hundreds of digital photographs from every possible angle. The resulting digital photographs create 'point clouds' which the computer assembles into one complete 3D rendering.
Paul Kaiser of OpenEnded Group writes: "The effect is of haunting stereoscopic spaces that seem to float halfway between our world and another. We’ve been intent on losing the fixed frame of the photograph, enabling the viewer to focus on particular objects or figures that they single out within the depths of the image."
