VIRTUAL GEOGRAPHIC

More shots from Minecraft, this time I decided to play tourist on a user-created map, 'Mineton' by Frossa, a beautiful, early 20th-century-themed place, walking around there felt like visiting a quiet Scandinavian town by the sea.

Once again, I used 'Sonic Ether's Unbelievable Shaders' to get those amazing dynamic shadows that really make Minecraft come alive.

I recently started an art project where I’m looking at reality and virtual reality, these two spaces where I spend most of my time, bringing them together in interesting ways. With that in mind, I added in some light leak effects to try give the images a sense of realism and tangibility (I even printed a couple of the shots onto glossy paper so I could feel them), they also fit with the vintage style of the map.

I’m not sure if I made the effect as good as it could be, certainly not as good as the real thing, hmm, capturing digital spaces with an analogue camera, a role reversal I may have to try…
