Artists do not always pursue photographic realism. The image abstraction and deformation of three‐dimensional scenes are methods to communicate ideas. Images are the visual interpretation of real life or imaginary scenes. This paper describes the idea of an infinite reflection model in which synthetic objects to be rendered are surrounded by closed reflective surfaces. The closed mirror surfaces create the ‘feedback’ effect which deforms objects inside the reflective space. Lens distortion effects are achieved by surrounding infinitely reflective curved surfaces. This technique provides a new visual tool for artists and graphic designers.
