Mystic Room, or One-wall Space
Mystic Room is the first version of the author’s personal website, which is made in 3D format. Favourite pictures, books, music, own design projects and ideas are brought together in a virtual 3D room – unusual interactive space of images, items and links.
The mysticism of the room is embodied in 7 concepts:
Concept 1. Swallowed Light;
Concept 2. Softness;
Concept 3. Triangular Time;
Concept 4. Gravitation Mix;
Concept 5. Wave Tunnel;
Concept 6. World of Red and Blue;
Concept 7 draws a conclusion: the Mystic Room is a space with only one wall.
Concept 1. Swallowed Light.
Imagine an ordinary light source, say, a light bulb. Naturally, the light has a degree of intensity. Now you attach a minus sign to the intensity – and you get a light absorber, sort of an indoor black hole. And if you don’t overdo the negative lighting (not to look for a black cat in a dark room :-)) but only try it you will find someone under the bulb (not a cat, though) that helps swallowing the light.
The piano is both a musical instrument and a symbol of music as a whole. Now you endue it with some attributes of a pudding, assign a favourite composition to each key – and get a funny musical box (yes, a piano – but definitely forte drunken :-)).
The seeming flabbiness of the piano is offset by hardness and even heaviness of music pieces assigned to the lower keys.
Concept 3.Triangular Time.
The concept is embodied in two objects: (a) the triangular display that converts any image into triangle format and (b) the three-sector clock (3s-clock). The main idea of 3s-clock is, 24 hours can be roughly broken down to 3 even periods: Time to Sleep, Time to Work and Time for Leisure. Each period corresponds to a separate hour hand on a triangle-shaped dial. A small second-hand in the centre enlivens the clock. 3s-clock is in fact a timer that reminds you of a balanced life and personal development.
Concept 4. Gravitation Mix.
There are cocktails and cocktails – all depends on the components. And what if you mix two differently directed gravity forces, i.e. add a horizontal gravity force to the traditional earth-bound one? The wall becomes not exactly a wall then but an extra floor that can be used in the proper way. Note that components mix only partially in our cocktail (as in bloody mary) – the two gravity forces do not combine in one, and you can walk both on the floor and the wall :-).
Concept 5.Wave Tunnel.
Enough of stillness! Shake the room to the ground by an event – a Wave! A wave caused by a giant hammer sliding in a vertical hyper-tunnel, and strong enough to warp the steel floor. And be careful with the wave – don’t break or spill anything! :-)
Concept 6.World of Red and Blue.
Nothing changes your perception of a room interior as lighting does. Exterior lighting gains a special meaning here, all the more so, as there is no clear boundary between the exterior and the interior in our room. A fictional world akin to the alien “Forest” of The Snail on the Slope, a famous novel by HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arkady_and_Boris_Strugatsky" Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, amplifies the room interior by a unique red / blue lighting. As you change the lighting the background music also shifts from anxiety to serenity and vice versa.
