At a distance, Bianka Oravecz’s Digital Lake could be mistaken for nature photography. But lurking beneath the glimmers and prismatic caustics of the water, the details of the uncanny, pseudo-organic lakebed lifeforms bely the true medium of these digitally-sculptured artworks. Using 3D modeling tools, Oravecz creates what she describes as “brainscans”: digital representations of her own dream-like inner visions. She created this original series for Silica Magazine’s Lake Issue.
