Waterfall Studies (no. 33, no. 36, no. 68) generates different flows for each screen. The waterfall patterns never repeat, but always move in harmony.
Waterfall Studies was created by combining paper textures and dynamic particle systems. The flowing water is generated algorithmically, without any source footage of actual water, but following the rules and physics of fluid dynamics. The colors and textures are pulled from real paper that was scanned and then integrated into the particle systems.
