Oman: Parametric Landscapes.

These parametric digital drawings where inspired from a visit to Jebel Shams, Al Ayn’s Beehive Tombs and several wadi gorges during a road trip through remote areas of Oman.

The drawings have been created using a set of parameters to automate the generation of lines, which in turn can be manipulated to form various shapes. The close proximity of lines and overlapping shapes tricks the eye to perceive dimension and create a ‘moiré vibrating effect. 

The geological like shapes mimic the wadi gorge which is often flat on top; canyons from a distances; behive tomb formations; and the wall formations of the Jebel Shams cliffs. The illustrations are not intended to be a direct representation of the landscapes, but allude to the mysterious, emptiness and alien-like sense of place.
