If you have ever wanted to look at a map of Europe and see all of its rivers and streams outlined, well now you can. An Australian Ph.D. student from the University of New South Wales named Robbi Bishop-Taylor is the one who has redrawn Europe by mapping out its waterways.

Bishop-Taylor was able to do this using open source geographic informational software called QGIS to research the 1.35 million streams throughout Europe. The result is a map of European with various blue colors and lines to dictate the different waterways. The thickness of the lines represents the number of each river’s tributaries.

We aim to produce images that are outside the “3d architectural visualization” category.

Our focus is on creating a unique overall feeling in the image, instead of forcefully instructing the viewer in what to think and feel about the project.

A Mir image gives space for an individual experience.

1.Natural light
We want to create images that humans instinctively relate to and connect with. Manipulating away shadows or faking light can backfire and result in images that feel “disguisive” and unnatural.

2.Unforced process
Strawberry cake and T-bone steak are both good things, but it is not a given that they work together in a dish. Camera angle, lighting, colour, and composition are the key ingredients that together make up the foundation of an image. A poor foundation cannot be saved with flares, fog and effects.

3. Thoughtful use of markers
Images that over instruct the viewer what to think and feel about the project can be unappetizing. We keep things natural and palatable by questioning the use of any symbolic markers such as “Kids with Balloons” or “Trendy Shopping Girls”.
