Perfect Prisms: Crystal Chapel

Inspired by Bruce Goff's breathtaking designs for a nondenominational chapel at the University of Oklahoma. The chapel has been reconstructed with an array of various prisms advancing out into space. Refraction of light and reflection color break up the serene environment and awaken it with new energy.

Vertical Mile

Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural concept for a mile high building known as The Illinois, (art)n envisions a contemporary Chicago with the Mile-High Tower standing as a essential part of the city's already impressive skyline. The tower was constructed digitally with Wright's design as the muse and brought to life in a truly elevated way that could only come from the magic of the PHSCologram medium.
