Wall of Borgs

Apr. 7, 2010 12:17 pm
Categories: Cyberpig Projects

Back when I was doing 3-d modeling I did an advertising campaign for Acclaima Software. Acclaima made a software engine that would personalize graphics. It could draw textual information from a database or text submission field and incorporate it into a graphic in realtime.

So the idea for this image was that personalization was the anti-borg approach to life. So we have many borgs with one missing, and he or she, scrawls a message on the wall proclaiming individuality. The message would be personalized for the subscriber, drawing a name from the database, or from a text field submission.

"Borg Wall " the base image that shows the bubbles that will be occupied by eight different drones.

The base render was done in Bryce using several different terrain maps.

For those who are technically inclined, Below is one the terrain maps that I made and used. They worked pretty well. Send me a message and I can get you the rest of them.

If you use them, send me an email with how the result looks. I'm always interested in other uses for stuff that I have laying around. This is the terrain map of wires and stuff that was overlayed on top of the nine tiled windows shown above.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
