BIOLUMINESCENT DEEP SEA CREATURES...
PROJECT DATE: 2014
Nova is an experimental study of the visual arts technique slitscan, with a particular emphasis on its spacial and temporal properties. The slit scan image is created using video footage of bioluminescent deep sea creatures, particularly comb jellyfish. These creatures acted as a source of inspiration for the form and animation. The resulting structure resembles a surreal organism that is locked into an ever-increasing state of perpetual growth, decay and transformation.
The structure is built and rendered in realtime and programmed in C++ using openFrameworks. For more info on the technical side have a look at this article on creative applications.
Headphones highly recommended.
Here are a few screenshots taken at various stages of the project.
