Game of Thrones fan art

October 27, 2015

Was wanting to get back into Processing, and no better way than attacking Westeros, filmed not far from where I live in Belfast.

The technique is quite simple, a radial repeating pattern(based on the ‘golden angle’ seen in the patterns of flowers / seed pods etc) that uses sprite images relevant to the character.  For Tyrion, I took the actual swords from the Iron Throne to build up his image, and for Daenerys I used various scaly dragon scales.  The brightness of each of these is controlled by an underlying portrait photo.

Universe Hand

July 12, 2015

Last in my trilogy of particle animation pieces – created purely with programming and algorithms.  In Universe Hand, I switch between 2 noise types which control the flow fields for the particle stands.  I alternate between ‘cloud’ like noise for organic, natural flow, and ‘block cell’ noise to create a linear circuit-like flow.  The particles also expand and contract in sync with the Indian yogic breathing technique ‘Pranayama’ – in this video ‘inhaling’ for 8 seconds, and ‘exhaling’ for 4 seconds.

There are parallels to the scientific model of an infinitely expanding and contracting cycle of the universe, and also referring to the Hindu mystical idea of Vishnu, the creator and destroyer of each universe cycle with his in-breath and out-breath.
