I thought this project by artist Mahmoud Jouini was an incredibly cool way of creating an abstract space with a tangible atmosphere. He uses 3D modelling software to create these surreal scenes that almost resemble bird’s eye view photographs from a helicopter. Even though these scenes aren’t intended to evoke anything in particular, they resemble both bacterial colonies and towering cityscapes. Plus, I thought the use of color was very powerful; he utilizes very moody, saturated palettes to give his scenes this dreamy quality. I’ll definitely be looking back at these as I work on project 1.3!
