Streams flow through living rooms. Aeroplane cabins are filled with plant life. Curtains open wide to reveal mountain realms. These are scenes by James Tralie (b. 1997), a 3D artist based in Washington, D.C. Dreamscapes imagines worlds adjacent to our own. Familiar spaces become overgrown or flooded, with great trees bursting skyward through cathedrals and lazy rivers snaking by. Elsewhere, fields of bright wildflowers surround classical architecture, like views ripped from the pages of J. R. R. Tolkien. There are nods to art history: Claude Monet’s famous Impressionist bridge, as found in Water Lily Pond (1899), appears amidst a sun-drenched colonnade. However, some of the composi- tions are tinged with foreboding, showing airports engulfed by greenery. Tralie is a producer for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and works on animations for space missions, bringing planets, asteroids and comets to life. jamestralie.com | @james_film
