Lego architecture- block build up continued..

Our world is based on an equaliser- the movement of the building itself is effected by the sound around it- and therefore we decided to have a look into the different ways in which this look could be achieved. Minecraft and Lego were the two main ones that I thought of.

(This gives an idea of what our world looks like).

My brother had a collection (putting it lightly) of Lego sets at home and thought they would provide a good basis for the building of our city/structure. The interlocking bricks and structures link together, much like the bars in an equaliser.

The one series that stood out to me was the Lego Architecture range- based on smaller models of famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower.

The Lego video games and the movie itself also represent visually what I’v been doing for years- building lego. Though, obviously, the bricks tend to move by themselves.

The Lego video games, such as the Starwars Saga and the Batman game also show similar game play to this.

Lego Starwars gameplay- skip to 6.24 minutes for a good look at the build up effect.

Minecraft was another thing we thought would help visualise our world, due to it being made from blocks. I’ve never been one to play computer games myself but looking into some of the awesome things people have  created are unreal.

Another thing that was suggested to us WAS 8 Bit art by Megan (she later did an amazing 8 bit inspired piece for her own world). Again these  images look to be mad up of blocks, like an equaliser is.

8bit color graphics is a method of storing image information in a computer’s memory or in an image file, such that each pixel is represented by one 8bit byte. The maximum number of colors that can be displayed at any one time is 256. – (Wikipedia, 2015)

I couldn’t find the artist’s name but they created this landscape throughout various stages of the day- it looked like a crazy detailed Pokemon game.

The simple animation in this gif is so beautiful- it gives a nice vibe to the chilled city as it enters dusk. Maybe an 8 Bit art attempt is in order…
