It's snowing outside and so with time on my hands I made a little animation which I find visually interesting. What looks complicated is just my favorite polyhedron, the tetrakaidecahedron, colored by distance from its center.

In the style of this Disney app I decided to make a "color script" for Danny Boyle's scifi thriller Sunshine.

I for one thrive on unique experiences and the interior designs of the world's most inspiring hotels.Read More

Below you can see the boundary surface mesh animated along a spline through the negative space of the object. There are now many awesome 3D printed artwork artists and vendors, on of my favorite is my friend Jeremie Brunet's art shop.Read More
