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 is now exploring possibilities in the digital space by mixing IRL architecture with abstract art. Channeling his years of experience in architectural visualization, he is experimenting his way to make this a reality in the metaverse: currently via images and motion graphics, but eventually into VR. His main tool at the moment is Blender (specifically with Geometry Nodes for procedural work), and a bit of Resolve and Affinity Photo for post. He sometimes adds music and sounds into his pieces too. And a lot of dabbling into other software here and there. He also doodles and draws a lot.


Recently, he has been immersed in AI art using diffusion models. He is fascinated by how the machine interprets prompts and loves spending time tweaking the settings or giving it images to start from. Surprisingly, it is not so easy to get the image one envisions, contrary to what some imagine. The development in this area of art is so fast and he excited to see where this leads. He believes that AI art will touch 3d art in a huge way soon and images are only the beginning.
