The art is so good that it actually takes away from the "art".
Part of art is the process in the creation. To paint something that hyper realistic takes practice and skill. Instead of some cubist abstractness
that the artist has to B.S. about his intentions of how it's the artistic interpretation and what it means he give you 'it'. To paint without
revealing a single brush stroke takes a steady hand and patience. Take a look at the titles on the books. Impressive. The Jelly beans? Just wow.
The only loss is the loss on the viewer of the viewers imagination. Take a look at a Van Gogh or a Matisse. You have to stare at it to figure what
it is. You have to interpret. Take a look at the Renaissance paintings. Yes they are up there on realism but there is a story. Non the less his
works can stand in the Moma in NY along the other works there.
As for the CGI- Only a trained eye could tell it's CGI. There are a few tell tales in the reflections off of some of the objects BUT they are
incredibly hard to notice unless you know to look for them. Every model in the scene is perfect. The fruits are all easy to mistake for real as well
as the crystals in the beginning. Even the particles when the objects break are hyper real. Did you notice the smoke/dust cloud when the crystals
Only when the blinds open right before the wide shots at 0:47 can I find a fault. They are to synchronized. They open all at the same speed at the
same time. No shame though it's like I'm trying to find faults...wait a minute I am.
