Hernan Diaz Alonso points out in his introduction that Arvind Palep’s work resonates in an architectural context because of its implications in a shift from representation to simulation. Palep entered the world of computer graphics with a fine arts background, and an interest in creating realistic synthetic life-forms via 3D and animation software. Palep values the digital medium for its potential in enabling viewers to suspend belief.
Palep reviews his background, and presents his Alias Sixes Last video that went viral on YouTube. He presents videos made for Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons, and videos of robots interacting with people, animals and objects in urban environments.
Palep presents videos made for the Adidas World Cup campaign, an MTV Japan promo, a video for Quinn’s, and a TED video featuring graphically modified insects.
