PLasma

Year: 2017

Technique: video, motion & generative design

 

Plasma started with a small Adobe After Effects tutorial (recreating bowels). Playing with the settings,

I ended up with these beautiful visuals on my screen. It was like witnessing a mysterious being coming to life. Generated by a machine! That was even more fascinating to me. Plasma is my very first generated design project. As a non-coder, I was very happy to be able to produce something like that.

 

The idea to build the video as a rough exploratory material came quickly as it's something that has been already in my head for a while. I used a NASA pic for the space view, made a small planet in After Effects, played with the camera lens, drew

a few graphics and put some sound on it.
