Overview

Substance: A Study of Matter
A 10-minute audio visual animation made in Houdini. 'Substance' is inspired by fluid dynamics and systems in nature. The visual narrative uses procedural techniques to create models. The result is complex organic forms emerging from matter. The music was composed in tandem with the visuals.

Goals

The goal was to illustrate colorful matter that was inspired by coral polyps
It is an abstract look at the process of substances as living artworks, colorful matter inspired by coral polyps and molecular anatomy. Watch and explore the audio-visual storytelling of these fluid forms as they emerge from their smallest denominators in search of greater form.

Process

Procedural techniques give these brightly animated substances its complexity and uniqueness.
