They look like photographs, but they are not. We are talking about the images of “Emotional Landscape”, the new personal project by Terzo Piano, a multidisciplinary studio whose work straddles the line between design and visual communication.
The project, which differs from all the studio’s previous works, has been defined as “a contemporary fresco, in which shapes and sinuosity of the human body invade the image such as a conjunction element between chromatic choices and architectural references”.
“Emotional Landscape” starts from the beautiful ceramic sculptures by the CuoreCarpenito studio and develops around them a context in which the architectural elements blend with the body.
For the most attentive of you and lovers of photography, the images will certainly remind you of Chinese photographer Ziqian Liu’s shots. However, while Ziqian Liu builds real sets that she uses as backgrounds for her self-portraits, the designers of Terzo Piano have created everything entirely in 3D rendering.
What tricks our eye and makes us believe that what we are looking at is real is the attention that has been paid to detail, such as the rendering of surfaces and objects: we have the feeling that we can touch the flowers with our finger or move the soft fabrics that form the background.
