Wormer and wormer

Tweaking the last parts of the ‘Worm Songs’ project( music by Henry Vega). Trying to make the visuals look minimal and elegant. We have put a lot of love and work on this project.

Texturing complexity

One of my main interest is the possible bridge between cinematic experiences and complex system(physical simulation). The last months I have been doing sketches for those ideas. Some of them have been already implemented to the on-going projects. The next examples are more personal insights over the topic.

This example uses a series of vertices that are displaced using different numerical filters. The primitives for drawing are lines. Also, I was testing different ways to bind the texture to the vertices using shaders. I am wondering what would happen if I use this idea with FBO to create more complex effects(like depth of field). The original texture is a photo from the beautiful greek island of Kythira.

Same principle but using points as the primitives for drawing. The size of the points makes the cluster extremely dense. I applied a little bit of noise for filtering the vertices position.

I have been playing quite a bit with the idea of dynamic displacement over surfaces. So far some results are quite interesting. Most of the offset is taken from audio analysis. The challenge has been to break the linearity of the input source. Some results:

This week I tried different ways to deform geometries using numerical filters and expressions. Some results I really like a lot.

Here are some snapshots of the piece ‘Turbulence’. The music was written by Kasia Glowicka and the Premier was the 4th of October 2009, in Sweden. The piece was developed with the help of STEIM, Amsterdam.
