cgimanufaktur stands for virtual photography or computer generated imagery (CGI). This technology requires the integrated usage of technical tools such as camera, image processing and 3D software, thus extending the limits of conventional image generation. This leads to the opening up of new image worlds as well as formulating abstract content, ideas and visions. CGI is already strongly influencing today‘s commercial communication and also shows future potential in both the applied and the artistic field. Full CGI renderings are almost limitless in their size and can ideally be adapted to the user’s needs.
