Visual Tectonics

BY MICHAEL ELKAN
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Photography and architecture are very closely related. It is through photographic images that architecture is widely seen, known and understood. Architects think in space-time dimensions but usually employ 2D media to develop their ideas. Architecture is truly experienced only in real space, time and scale. The photographer’s task is to reverse engineer that reality through acute observation and to construct a relatively small 2D image that begins to evoke the experience of being there.

BY GRAEME BORLAND
@ VOL 38 ON JUN 06, 2019

Graeme Borland is a game developer who typically spends his workday writing code.

Watch this inspiring 20x20 talk to see and hear more about this ongoing project, what he discovered throughout the process, and how he's been able to keep this up for more than 2,000 days in a row.
