isicad.ru editor-in-chief: Below is a slightly abridged version of a large report Evgeny Shirinyan published recently in his blog about his contribution to a unique photography exhibition held at the Moscow Central House of Artists late past February. The exhibition focused on Vyacheslav Polunin, a Soviet/Russian/planetary comedian and performing artist, president of the Academy of Fools and founder of the Snowshow, whose work demands that his story should be told with utmost creativity. Perhaps the younger readers will be at a loss to say who Polunin is, so this article is a useful piece of information. For those who won’t find the time to click on the links given by Shirinyan let me cite the media news: “The 5D format opens up five senses. The viewers will see photographs, feel the smell of meadows, woods, flowers and bread, get in touch with creativity, hear a special soundscape and taste ice-cream made of natural ingredients and homemade cookies”.
I would have recommended to read the article below even if it had been a simple report. However, Evgeny also describes the process of both standard and unconventional application of such tools as SketchUp (for modeling) and Rhino (for computation), reflects on interactions with real model producers and looks into possibilities of teamwork based on BIM.
Evgeny Shirinyan is a Moscow Architectural Institute lecturer, Digital Culture module supervisor at the Moscow School of Architecture (MARCH), PARALAB group member, PROSAPR blogger and also isicad.ru active contributor and commentator. Among his publications are CAD and Art, or the Fascinating Potential of SpaceClaim, BIM = Architecture? On the Development of Architectural Education, and Inforbix — a View from the Outside, or Web 3.0 is Already in the Making.
