Het tekenen van droomwerelden was al een van de specialiteiten van James Eads. Eerder schreven we over zijn kosmische tekeningen die in gifjes waren veranderd, maar met nieuwe software is hij een flinke stap verder gegaan. Met Tiltbrush, de VR-versie van Microsoft Paint, kan hij nu zijn bomen, watervallen, bergen en ander natuurgeweld direct in 3D maken.

“Ik ben nog nooit zo simpel op een nieuw medium gaan werken,” vertelt Eads aan The Creators Project. De mogelijkheid om de penseelstreken in Tiltbrush op de beat van de muziek te laten glinsteren, vond hij een van de beste functies van het programma. “Muziek is altijd al mijn belangrijkste inspiratiebron geweest. Het is al fantastisch om in drie dimensies te kunnen schilderen, maar die vierde laag maakt het echt af.”

Zijn ontdekkingsreis in dit nieuwe medium, waar ook kunstenaars als Rachel RossinStuart CampbellGlen Keane en Dustin Yellin mee bezig zijn, heeft Eads naar een hogere dimensie geleid. In ongeveer zes dagen heeft hij een zwarte ruimte met zeven portalen gemaakt, die ieder naar een ander universum leidden. Aangezien de ruimte oneindig is, is Eads voorlopig nog wel even zoet met Tiltbrush. Op zijn Instagram houdt hij ons op de hoogte van zijn vorderingen.

Hieronder zie je een greep uit zijn VR-schilderwerk:

the first forms emerge, as consciousness develops they question their purpose. they do not understand that there is nothing to be understood, life is enough. painted in @tiltbrush | @seaneads

in the gap between places the first portal of the new year presents itself: it flows with a natural magic that draws its warmth from the earth. ________________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush | @seaneads

the second portal opens: its cold beauty is alluring and it draws you in. deep inside is a shimmering capsule that reminds you of the fragility of the heart. _______________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush / @seaneads

a third portal appears, its purpose is unclear, but inside the orb you find here is a singular black hole, it expands your understanding of space and time. ________________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush | @seaneads

you return to the gap between places, with your concept of space and time altered you can now see the positions of future portals. you enter the fourth one and inside you are met with a field of black holes that lead to other dimensions. _______________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush @seaneads

a fuzzy green subportal appears, you submerge yourself and dive into the collective unconscious. ______________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush | @seaneads

you discover the sixth portal and it takes you to the land with the red moon. the gravitational pull is different here and as you enter its orbit you begin to float above yourself. _______________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush | @seaneads

as you leave the land with the red moon you drift upwards and notice the seventh portal. it's been here all along. as you enter a familiar feeling rushes through you. you have arrived, you are home. ______________________ painted in virtual reality with @tiltbrush @seaneads
