"I look at objects but not as what they are and what they could be. A water pipe can be visualised as a pipe for an engine part," he said during Meet-and-Greet session organised by Spacetoon Malaysia, here. Curry (picture), who is most famous for his work on Star Trek series like 'The Next Generation', 'Deep Space Nine', 'Voyager' and ' Enterprise' also said computers were just a tool which had limited capabilties but the human mind could do beyond that in creating ideas. The mind could do more by thinking creative ideas, and bring into conceptualisation and rendering into films, he added. He said artists should have trust on their artistic job and story telling capabilities. "In my own art, I try to explore the world of imagination, reinterpret and capture direct experiences to expose inner vision. Craftsmanship and a high quality of execution are very important to me," he added. He was currently working on several projects including a Star Trek project in collaboration with Disney, he added. His visit to Malaysia was accompanied by his son, Devin, a producer from Hollywood.
