Tendrils ~ Max Cooper, Trust @ epok
Interactive music video for [Max Cooper's Emergence](http://emergence.maxcooper.net/).
Concept, prototyping, development for interactive visuals.
The visuals are an emergent physical system of interacting particles.
Complex organic forms emerge spontaneously, from simple interactions at the individual scale - in a fluid-like advection, particles recursively affect and affected by the field of motion.
Forms in motion, interact spontaneously, knitting emergent interconnections.
A continuous reflexive process — coheres through ascending scales of complexity; recurs through cycles of entropy and order.
Moving through scales, evoking natural forms:
From primordial matter, forms; ovum, animal...
Through self; community...
Towards interconnection; cohesion...
Led the project visuals - concept, development, project lead. Collaborated with [Max Cooper](https://maxcooper.net/) (music, _Emergence_ project), and [Joe Murrél](https://vimeo.com/murrellproductions) (video editing).
A creative response to Max Cooper's amazing _Emergence_ audio-visual project. Evolved out of an experiment I made [exploring an aspect of fluid dynamics](https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/fluid-simulation-for-video-games-part-1). I'd been fascinated by Max's works for a long time (in particular his [collaborations with Andy Lomas](https://vimeo.com/98435385)), and was really excited by the opportunity to work with him to create something between our visions.
This turned into a marathon passion project over a long period of evenings/weekends. It was also a place for me to freely explore ideas and expressions, and to experiment with new techniques and technical challenges.
