"Unrelenting Physical Aggression" is composed of punches, kicks, throws and grunts sampled from some of the most popular action film sequences (according to the Internet).

The clip was created using custom rotoscoping software that transforms visual artifacts from aggressive cinematic gestures into vector shapes that look like paint as it splatters on a canvas. The software was made with openFrameworks.

"Unrelenting Physical Aggression" is part of a series called Action Painting, which presents cinemas most vicious and violent moments as our culture has come to appreciate them -- as beautiful works of art.
