Particle Molds [Video]

Posted on Jun 7, 2009

For Sale?  No.

First showcased for the UCSB-MAT (Media Arts Technology) 2009 Spring Opening, this video uses particles systems and MEL scripting to simulate microbial growth and communication between systems. These systems emit smaller language particles which influence the global color of the simulated fungus.


This video has four key innovations:

  • Inspired by Ted Talk by Bonnie Bassler
    Two multi-topological particle systems
    Particles communicate and react to “chemical” emissions
    Automated camera placement and vantage points
