Inspired by Jeff Briant’s piece titled "The vents are opening".
This piece was totally in the backlog for a few weeks. I forgot about it because it took 3 days to render with 8192 Cycles and 1024 Diffuse bounces, but by then I was on to other things.
"We made Durr to explore how we perceive 5 minutes in different situations. By markedly shivering every 5 minutes, it creates a haptic rythm to make us notice the changing tempo of time."
"UTA Flight 772 was a scheduled flight operating from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo to Paris CDG airport in France. The flight never made it. All on board perished. Eighteen years later, families of the victims gathered at the crash site to build a memorial. The memorial was built mostly by hand and uses dark stones to create a 200-foot diameter circle. The Tenere region is one of the most inaccessible places on the planet. The stones were trucked to the site from over 70 kilometers away. The memorial was built over the course of two months in May and June of 2007. The memorial can be seen from Google Earth and Google Maps."
