Revolved forms

Graphic design | comments Comments Off | 2076 Views

Revolved forms is an abstract 3D project, which explores different shapes, colors, lights and materials.

The author of this project is Črtomir Just. He is a designer from Slovenia, that mostly does graphic design projects, but who is especially interested in 3D and photorealistic rendering.

First time I saw the project, I was all over it. The shapes attracted me instantly, shiny! And, as everyone else, I wanted to know more. What is this about? What did he want to present? So I asked him:

“I wanted to see if it’s possible to make interesting forms in space with the help of cloning one simple object. From the beginning, the first shapes started to remind me of some kind of organisms, shells, fossils, so I tried to give them names accordingly.”

The descriptions are some short facts about each of these living or non living organisms.

Cordis

The distinctive rounded shells of cockles are
heart-shaped when viewed from the end.

Haliotis

Abalones (sea ears) are composed of mother-of-pearl,
giving rise to a range of strong and changeable colors.

Medusa

Jellyfish have roamed the seas for over 500 million
years and are the oldest multi-organ animal.

Nautilus

Nautiluses represent the only living members of the subclass
Nautiloidea, and are often considered “living fossils”.

Nucleus

Pill bugs (Armadillidium vulgare) have the ability to roll
in a ball and are often kept as pets by children.

Trochus

The Trachidae, common name top snails, are a
taxonomic family of very small to large sea sea snails.

Asterias

Echinoderms (sea stars, sea urchins) are the largest phylum
that has no freshwater or terrestrial representatives.

Ammonis

Ammonites are an extinct group of marine invertebrate animals
that are somewhat related to the now living Nautilus.
