Architecture is a reflection of how we think of ourselves and our place in the world. The work of Alfa Smyrna, our March 2021 3D Artist of the Month, is inseparably linked to her life experience. Having spent time in Sweden, where she worked on the iconic IKEA catalog, Alfa developed a great appreciation not only for the Scandinavian aesthetic, but the lifestyle as well. Her personal philosophy naturally extends to her designs, which capture the simple and timeless elegance of minimalist iconography.
In our interview, Alfa talks about creating her own models, honest materials and the beauty of imperfection.

The past year was a very rough and difficult one. We all had to face completely new circumstances and find a way to cope with them. We at RebusFarm know that everything is connected and therefore one thing affects the other and a lot of us were affected quite hard.
Especially in difficult times like these, we have to stay together to be able to rise again. We thought about what we could do to help and came up with:

At one point in the critically acclaimed TV series ‘Westworld’, a character refers to humanity as a “thin layer of bacteria”. When taking a closer look at Brian Lai’s lifelike digital portrait of the show’s star, Anthony Hopkins, one might agree to this rather unflattering description: to teach his students the basics of sculpting anatomy, the Malaysian 3D artist and lecturer meticulously handcrafted every single skin pore of his subject. The result, however is much more than the sum of its (microscopic) parts, and stands as an impressive example of Brian’s talent, diligence and keen eye.
In our interview, Brian talks about his background in photography, choosing to remain a hobbyist and the unique joy to be found in human skin.
