Title:


    Spectral Landscapes:Fourier Mountains

Exhibition:


Medium:


    Terrain Synthesis

Size:


    8" x 10"

Category:



Artist Statement:


    My approach to scene simulation has been to minimize computation by implying scene detail with texture instead of modeling it explicitly with intricate geometry. My motivation in the “Spectral Landscapes” series was to overcome a limitation in my previous quadric surface modeling, which did not simulate rugged mountains convincingly.
