Star Girl

June 20, 2015

Another Particle based art work – an accompanying animation to the “Star Girl’ piece I done, and a complementary piece to Particle Man.


Here’s a general description of the process for these series of pieces.

“A mixture of particle physics, and NASA Voyager recordings.  This is an experimental digital work created using programming code to simulate mathematical and scientific models of particle collisions to create 3D sculptural forms.

Thousands of particles are released from a source in 3D space in close proximity to an invisible geometric shape of a human head.  Using newtonian physics to calculate the force, acceleration and mass of each particle – the software code simulates the trajectory and collisions of each particle.  The human head then starts to fill up with particles that collect inside and reveal the head shape with the various densities of particles.  Many particles also ‘miss’ and fall out into space around the head.

This is what I would call ‘emergent art’, in that I have no preconceptions of the final result, but rather rely on the unexpected results of a complicated simulation system using natural forces to create the final video.”

This animation originates from a still work.  Together, both the still work and the animation give the viewer a dual experience of a singular piece, offering and immersive and unique way of appreciating digital art.  It’s art in four dimensions you could say, a single piece experienced in time and space.”

make what you want of this.. I saw an obvious visual connection (e.g. crown of thorns) between two of the most iconic images in religion and culture, and thought it interesting to transplant one onto the other. I had no intention of being religious or polical with this – but unavoidably it’s precisely those two things. I think there could be lots of different interpretations though.

This is an accompanying installation piece for my ‘Particle Man’ digital art work (seen below) – a 5 x 5 limited edition available for purchase.
