Slices of Land

Almost exactly two years ago I was looking for a high res photogrammetry terrain to create a new cross-section animation for light painting. I was interested in the idea of photo to 3D and back to photo.

As I was searching through the many free terrains out there I stumbled across this very detailed model + textures with a free (MIT) license by Balmor3D at Not much information was provided but the model is entitled grassy rocky mountains oceania.

The cross section animation I made (see bellow) was playing at 30fps on my mobile while the camera rotated. I kept micro-moving the mobile in a repeatable fashion to create patterns within patterns. On the last one I panned the camera instead of rotating it.

If you'd like to be the sole owner of the cover photo, I just minted it as a single edition at #NFTshowroom
