3D Tarot Cards (2018)

Cinema4D - 3.5" x 2.5"

The definition of nostalgia is essentially "a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations", a concept that heavily inspired the aesthetics and concept of this work.

This work is an exploration of nostalgia, play, and childhood memories in a 3D virtual space using the 3D rendering software Cinema4D. This is depicted through Tarot cards as they were historically used as game cards, but more recently used for divination concerning the past, present, and future. There is an emphasis on food, simple shapes and pastel scenes presented in an isometric view that draw from the aesthetics of children shows like Mr. Rogers or Sesame Street juxtaposed with darker, depressive themes for subversive humor.
