Assignment 2    Getty

I took inspiration from the Rococo Room in the Getty to create a similar room with my own twist on the rococo embellishments. The chandelier and walls of the room are based on those in the room in the Getty, but the modeled room is much more compact. This small room seems to be enchanted - the crystals on the chandelier fall to the floor like raindrops which sustain the plant life that grows on the floor and up the walls. These plants take the place of normal Rococo designs, which are usually very plant-like anyway, and in fact turn into gold the higher they get up the walls. They eventually get up to the ceiling and wrap around the chandelier where they form a continuous cycle which is echoed in the four large mirrors.
