1194D is originally a tweak of 115C8 (vimeo.com/45569702), one of my “Algorithmic Creature” series based on recursive triangle subdivision. The idea and complexity of the work started to go beyond the initial expectation after I decided to experiment with multiple “creatures” co-existing within the environment. So I created this grid with regular tetrahedron as its unit cell, put these triangle-based “creatures” into this environment and tested their mutation and combination in various ways.
The entire work is programmed and generated in Processing, with a few scenes using some blur and blend modes in Premiere during composition stage.

Employing Jesse Kanda’s signature liquid textures and mutating figures, “Fluid Silhouettes” explores the experimental forms of our Spring 14 collections. Genderless bodies shift in shape and proportion, morphing into abstract translations of key men’s and womenswear silhouettes. In sync with producer Arca’s dystopian electronic soundtrack, their fluid transitions capture Spring’s forward-looking take on androgyny.
Toronto’s Egyptrixx [David Psutka] returns to Night Slugs with his immersive second album “A/B til Infinity” Since his 2011 debut LP “Bible Eyes”, Psutka has been busy with various studio production projects as well as recording and touring with his side-project Hiawatha. His return as Egyptrixx takes the form of a multi-media collaboration with Berlin-based
visual artist A N F - Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
The project consists of the album, the video for Ax//s and an Audio/Visual live set for the Egyptrixx world tour 2014.
18F44 is a further study based on EDF0 [vimeo.com/43752422], the recursive structure was first extended to three dimensional protrusion based on a regular hexagon as 18F44 demo [vimeo.com/52062612]. In this version, the base regular hexagon is replaced by a group of six intersecting planes to provide more complexity. In addition, I create a more flexible controlling mechanism which allows me to separately play with each child on each level of the structure. You can see processes of “growth”, “mutation”,”protrusion” and “disintegration” in this movie clip demonstration.
The whole visual image is generated real-time in Processing.
My friend and collaborator, Wack Wang [wackwang.com], composed this amazing soundtrack for this piece of work.
This video is an artistic interpretation of the tune “Flower Of Destruction #4”. The tune is taken from Felix K’s debut album “Flowers Of Destruction” that is released by Hidden Hawaii LTD.
