Naked Choices

Naked Choices

1999 © Tobin James Mueller
collaborative artwork for The Power of 10, a VisionForge MultiMedia Project with
Ian Brand, Danny Falch, Toy Takai and Robert Ulrich.

"Dido Ariana entered the Hall of Choices, gathering before herself the tools
with which she might forge the future. A sudden chill tightened her chest,
and she feared that, if she chose incorrectly, her daughter would not survive."

This image was originally rendered in Bryce 4 as an experiment with multiple volumetric lighting effects.
The moon image is the internal Bryce moon face and all lighting beams and shadows were created in Bryce.
The image of Dido Ariana is by Ian Brand; 3D model of the robot ("Din") is by Danny Falch; the harp
was painted and scanned in by Toy Takai; the image of the sitting angel is by
Tara McGovern; and the proto- Saturn Planet is a collaborative effort
by Tobin Mueller and Robert Ulrich. Post-production done in Photoshop 4.
