Still Life with Wi-Fi
Perhaps a little odd submitting something that has no 'figures' in it, per se.


I've been interested in trying to bring some traditional modes into figure modelling for a while, and I thought still lifes might be an interesting challenge. As I developed my ideas, I thought it would be more interesting to create scenes where the 'people' are just off camera - as if they might interact with the objects at any moment.


I also wanted to create scenes that evoke an emotional response or call a specific experience to mind, and to do it without latching onto obvious tropes.

Anyway, in the end, I was very happy with how it all came out - I feel like I achieved something I didn't really know I wanted to do.


Everything is scratchbuilt except the beer bottles, which are modified from some wine bottles I found in a Tamiya kit.

In order from the left in the first image, these are 'Still life with bedroom detritus and wi-fi', 'Still life with old boots and wi-fi', 'Still life with Haagen-Dazs and wi-fi', 'Still life with sunflowers and wi-fi (after Van Gogh)' and 'Still life with beer and wi-fi'. The wi-fi is a joke between me and my wife about how any still life could include it.

I hope you all like them!

    Still lifes are subjects that we generally see in 2D on canvas, here in 3 D it’s just awesome !! I love this kind of concept that comes out of what we usually see. I sincerely believe that being creative is an artist’s hallmark, congratulations !! Diamond !!

      Cheers, Kyle! You absolutely should - aside from a lot of swearing at the fiddly bits, they’re very calming.
