The eerily lit interiors represented by Kalpakjian do not exist in three-dimensional reality. Devoid of human presence, these are virtual spaces designed with the most sophisticated architectural computer-aided design programs available. Rather than using this imaging software to produce a simulated view of what a proposed building might look like, Kalpakjian uses it to design fictitious architecture solely for the purpose of creating the pictures he has imagined.
