NOVA

Nova is an experimental study of the visual arts technique slit-scan with a particular focus on emphasising its spacial and temporal properties. The slit-scan image is created using video footage of bioluminescent deep sea creatures, particularly Comb Jellyfish. These creatures acted as a source of inspiration for the form and animation. The resulting structure resembles a surreal organism that is locked into an ever-increasing state of perpetual growth, decay and transformation.

The structure is built and rendered in realtime and programmed in C++ using openFrameworks. For more info on the technical side have a look at this article on Creative Applications.

Headphones are definitely recommended.

Here are a few screenshots taken at various stages of the project.
