36 Movie Frames of a Virtual World | 3D Real-Time Art Piece and Accompanying Photos

Martin Lenclos shoots cityscape and street-life photographs and “paints” virtual 3D environments in three dimensions, based on a 3D photo collage of thousands of photo sprites and using video game technology. 36 is a 3D real-time experience representing a 21st c. flow set. The photographic components of the piece were taken in Rotterdam, New York, San Francisco and Paris. The result is both a proposal for an interactive art installation, and a series of photographic prints.
