make architecture weird again.

The entities in my pieces, they are trying to send a message that I cannot understand. But I am listening carefully.
Self-exiled from architecture and interior design, warrragwag has recently turned his focus to exploring the digital space through the creation of immersive environments in the metaverse. Drawing on his extensive experience in architectural visualization, he started to bring this vision to life in the form of images and motion graphics. Of late, he has started on a journey of creating immersive environments via some metaverse platforms such as Hyperfy, Spatial and the MOCA ROOMs ecosystem.
He utilizes a range of digital tools, with Blender - particularly its Geometry Nodes feature for procedural work - as his primary tool. He also incorporates post-processing software like DaVinci Resolve and Affinity Photo to refine his creations, and often includes original music and sound effects in his work. In addition, he has experimented with various other art-related software and even delved into the creation of AI art during its early surge in popularity in the spring of 2022.
Throughout his creative process, warrragwag frequently doodles and sketches to explore new ideas and approaches. As he continues to refine his skills and experiment with new techniques, he is excited to push the boundaries of what's possible in the metaverse and beyond.
