Every time a new action film or animated movie comes out, we marvel at the amazing computer-generated effects. But those effects can be even more impressive on a small, quiet scale. Artist Benoît Dereau has created a 3D walkthrough of a Paris apartment that's mind-blowing in its sheer attention to detail and subtlety.
I pride myself on being able to tell when something's the result of computer-generated trickery. But in this case, I found myself leaning in to my computer screen, trying to find the flaws with the 3D-rendered space. More often than not, I come up empty. Sure, the light doesn't react quite right, and there's no reflection in the mirrors, but beyond that, the detail in Dereau's rendering is stunning.
