Visualization in 3D

The Real World Miniaturized

I recently posted what was really a hoax (or at the very least mislabeled), but it was fun to watch anyways…a splice of architectural renders showing what was called as “Second Life 2.0″.

So in the spirit of posting unrelated stuff, I’ll share this video which doesn’t show a virtual world, but kind of looks like a fancy miniature model or a tiny micro virtual world:

Tilt Shift Test 02 from CeeDee on Vimeo.

In fact, this is a video of a real place. According to Digital Urban:

“Tilt-shift miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a miniature scale model.

By distorting the focus of the photo, the artist simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is (Wikipedia) and it is particularity suited to cityscapes.”

I find it way cute. And for a Monday morning, it reminds me of, um, well how ant-like I often feel in traffic.
