Type: 3D experiment
Medium: photography, digital collage
Location/Date: Groendal, South-Africa 2006
There's something intriguing about the realism of the micro-cosmoses of scale models and life-size museum displays. When the first 3D freeze frames popped up in the early 2000's, one seemed to navigate within a photograph as if it were a display. By replacing a tripod with an analogue 60mm camera on fixed points of a 6m radius circle around the model, I made 24 photographs to simulate a 3D effect. The term 'Ayoba' in the project-title meant something like 'thrive' or 'good vibrations' in then South-African pop-culture.
