Posted by Kathleen Moore, CastleView 3D:
I recently discovered one of my renderings displayed on a webpage called “thread of calm.”
I’m not quite sure what the site is about, and that particular thread looks like it hasn’t been updated in over a year.
But hey, even though my image was hijacked, I kind of like knowing that someone somewhere found it evocative and calming.
As a former therapist, this suggests to me a quasi-therapeutic use for 3D renderings: create (or have a 3D artist create) a virtual “happy place” designed to your specifications — a space which has the ability to calm and soothe you just by looking at it — maybe a real place, or something remembered from your past, or perhaps completely imaginary. Then you could set the image as wallpaper on your computer or phone, and “go to your happy place” by gazing at your 3D image whenever you need to take a step back from the stresses in your life and lower your blood pressure by a few points!
What do you think? Is there a potential market for a service like that?
