Well, no, not really. But it is interesting, and an interesting way to photograph an interior space (which happens to be in my nearly-completed renovation project).
Supposedly the camera I used for this could also create images that could be "experienced" with certain VR equipment. I've no way to test that yet.
...collages of current construction photos (taken with my aging phone's panorama function) and the corresponding renderings from the 3D model.
Presumably, sometime in December if I repeat this exercise one won't be able to discern the difference.
Incidentally, since I've been asked about this: this is a single-family residence, I am the architect, and (this seems to really really matter to some people) the whole project was modeled principally in Trimble SketchUp and McNeel Rhino. And the construction drawings were also composed in Rhino, from DWG files exported from the SketchUp model. That's eccentric as architectural software technique goes, but it has worked relatively well for me.
Well, that is
Somewhat more information, as well as descriptions of other unnerving work, is available on the award-winning architect/designer's website:
David Bowie as a priest wearing a blindfold with button eyes; a dead astronaut with a jeweled skull; a woman with a tail and a unibrow; a bunch of people dancing with little jerks or maybe having seizures; a giant candle; some living scarecrows who might be dreaming of being belly dancers...oh, and Cthulhu. Let's not forget Cthulhu.

Lewis Wadsworth is a designer, artist, and teacher in Boston, Massachusetts.
Lewis' architectural projects have appeared in AIArchitect, the journal of the American Institute of Architects, and have been honored by the Boston Society of Architects. He has also illustrated projects for architecture firms in the United States, Australia, and Japan. He teaches 3D design and software courses at the Boston Architectural College. He has served as a technical adviser on software manuals, and oddly enough sometimes is paid to tell publishers what he thinks about proposed books on software commonly used by architects.
Lewis also fences with an épée. A lot. And yes, that is a type of sword.
