"If you want to develop an individual look to your work, my advice is not to take the accepted capabilities of a piece of software. Decide what you want to achieve first, and figure out a way of making it happen." - Brian Taylor The 4x4 Project invited four leading designers celebrated for their experimental work in 3D to create new pieces on the theme of Geometry and Chaos. In this book you\'ll find the information and the inspiration to bend tools to your own ends. The designers describe how they use applications including 3ds max, Carrara Studio, and Strata 3D to create the components for their final images, before processing them with Photoshop to add depth, color, texture, and complexity.
This book immerses the reader in the four phases of the process:

  • Theory: personal accounts of the creative process, manifestos, diaries, mental sketchbooks, and associated ephemera
  • Geometry and Chaos: the finished original art works
  • Process: detailed, first hand, technical descriptions of the creation of each piece, along with original source files on the accompanying CD
  • Noise and Interference: the four designers discuss, sample, and remix their colleagues\' work

The 4x4 Project
4 books, each hosting 4 acclaimed and pioneering digital artists who take on one of 4 outsized themes: Light & Dark, Life & Oblivion, Geometry & Chaos, Time & Stasis. They pick their tools of choice: Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, 3D, or Code. They create. They debate. They collaborate. Each book is an original artwork, a manual, a scrapbook, and a laboratory experiment.
