This article describes “Biotope,” a scene created by artist Nyu using Modifier feature.
I will introduce the key points to appreciate the scene, how he uses Modifier, and how he arranged it.
Born in 2000. As a fashion designer, he founded and created his own brand called Remote Control Club.
When the work is launched, a tunnel of abstract patterns unfolds before your eyes.
Once through the tunnel, a space composed of different objects opens up.
There are plants growing that look like seaweed.
An intricate abstract object sits in the center.
Objects strongly indicate their presence through rotation and other movements.
The coloring, which looks both metallic and visceral, is distinctive and disastrous.
The title “Biotope” means “biological environment.”
I feel that the objects stretched out like mucus and the intricate geometric patterns represent a virtual biological environment.
Even though there are no living creatures there, the traces of their existence are used as motifs to create the spatial works.
Points to utilize Modifier

The following is an explanation of how he used Modifier on STYLY Studio.
center obj is an object placed on the center stage.
He used Rotate in Animation of Modifier. The abstract state can be viewed from various angles.
The same Rotate of Animation is used for the sowrd circle.
In this sowrd circle, multiple objects are assembled into a circle when prefabricated. The axis is set to the center so that it rotates nicely.
When placing multiple objects in a circle, be careful of the position of the axes.
Rotate Animation is also used for the drill object.
Although simple to use, Rotate is very versatile. Use Rotate when you want to give information to an object without changing its position.
Rotate in Animation is also used for the long object. The vertical rectangular objects are placed at different angles, so Rotate is used to create a gradient of light.
He used Heartbeat in Animation at a cable circle. The size of the animation can be changed to make it appear as if it were alive.
Because of the intricate structure of the work, instead of making large movements, we use animations that do not change position but change size and rotate to create a scene with a large amount of information without affecting the overall structure.
Instead of using Modifier carelessly, make effective use of them to enrich the scene.
