Picasso’s Guernica in 3D

The 3D rendering of Picasso’s Guernica was animator Lena Gieseke’s MFA thesis project. Gieseke likens the detailed study of paintings to assembling a painting jigsaw puzzle, in that it requires developing an awareness for the lines, shapes and colours and how these elements emerge to create a unified work. The 3D rendering of Picasso’s Guernica offers an interesting technique for appreciating the original.

    Interesting exercize. This illustrates perfectly why “more” is actuall “less”. Picasso wanted to show how the media flatten out reality for comfortable consumption. This 3-D version is so much flatter that the original 2-D one!
    Admirably illustrates why a technician should never present himself as an artist, as so many do these days.
