I elected to do do some renders for my final output. I used a combination of Sketchup, 3D StudioMax with VRay and Photoshop.
My images are of a pavilion i created to represent the information and media in an age with fake news and many voices. It appears in space and seemingly endless with many different sources before you find yourself at a central area of truth.
I built the whole pavilion in Sketchup. Once completed i imported some of the individual elements into 3DStudio Max and collapsed them as i needed the model to look endless. By collapsing the individual elements this turned them into polygons which allowed me to manipulate the model and set the cameras up for the render much more easily.
I set the cameras and lighting all using the V-Ray settings dialogues until i found a suitable solution for each view.
Once the renders were complete i saved them out as TIF files and begun to work on them in photoshop. I added the glowing light, noise, lens flare and and light streaks in photoshop before exporting out to JPEG format to upload onto here.
The pavilion is a series of suspended rooms with different information being broadcast in each space with information flying around them. There is then a central area where a truth is broadcast, the access to all these spaces is supposed to ambiguous to create the idea that no one ever knows where the truth is in a post factual era.
