This is a work inspired by different pieces of the Persian Architecture. It’s a free interpretation because I have not translated a known and unique building. I have taken ideas and concepts from here and there, mainly from different temples in the irani city of Isfahan. The main dome is based in the structure of the “Moder-É Shah” and the columns and vaults are inspired by the “Mosque of Iman” but ornamentation is invented.

My main tool has been Electric Image Animation System in a Mac G4 733.

You can find THE MOVIE and more images, wireframes, wip, making-of... in my site:

oh man, thats beautiful. I want to know more of how you made it, especially with the textures. Have you drawn them by yourself, and if so, how long did that take you?

I have been thinking of making something similar a long time but with a touch of northern viking art. So I'm curious of how you made this one.

can the clip be downloaded?

edit: found the making-of.

Thanks for your kind words, friends.
Thorulf: yes, you can save the movie to your hard disc (I have not included any kind of protection against that…)
Best regards.

wow this is gorgeoushttp://cgtalk.com/images/smilies/scream.gif I've always loved the persian styled ornamentation. Amazing. Incredible use of geometry. I'm not much of a math man but is that Euclidian? The shapes are perfect. Wow

The music is Very fitting. Wish I could visit ithttp://cgtalk.com/images/smilies/eek.gif

I loved this and I loved Snakes too. But I missed the sense of an everflowing, constantly unfolding experiment. The bulk of this one was just a fly-through, and if there was something going on under the pretty picture it was not communicated in the movie alone.

Hey there Eterea, nice to meet you. :beer:

A few Months ago i watched your Escher Movie and thought that Style is just amazing. I grew up with Escher. I did his geometrical Corpses out of Paper (we had a Book with samples.) He was always my favorite drawing Artist. And the one Question that always bugged me was; what would Escher would have done with a Computer.
Your Animation was the closest conversion of the Escher Style in the third and fourth dimension i've seen until now. :) I love the Style. You're used that much it in Isfahan too. I love teh movement of the Camera, the Timing, the Textures and oooh, the Reflections. Geometric, artistic, beautiful.

Just keep it up and post again. :thumbsup:

regards

Looks nice, you can tell a lot of effort has been put to it but to be honest I've never seen Quran Writings on a floor, some people might find this offensive!

Great work, absolutely stunning. How big are the textures(resolution) and how many were used?

Just took a look at your website: great breakdown of how you went about creating this masterpiece. True skill.

wow. intricate. fractal. trippy. Like a movement from the visualisation of mathematics to the mundane perception of the ordinary world - and then back again.

Amazing work! I like this style. Lines. Textures. Ornaments. Music. Mood. Very very athmospheric.

This is most impressive. I especially like the way the lines start to "grow" to form the structure... wow !
