Artist Statement:


Architects have traditionally represented and manipulated the three-dimensional geometry of buildings either in flattened projections (plans, elevations and sections) or in small-scale physical models. Three-dimensional interactive computer graphics systems open up the exciting possibility of directly composing masses and volumes in three-dimensional space, projected into perspective from any desired viewpoint, and free from the limitations of material, gravity and smallness of scale that are encountered with the use of physical models.
