This piece was created with SideFX Houdini. Inspiration for this animation came from installations created by Daniel Rozin. His installations use hundreds of mirrors (and other surfaces) to reflect the environment to create a dynamic image. The image is created by calculating luminance values from a camera mounted inside of the installation. I used a similar method in Houdini; my original footage (Lucid Pictures) was run though a VOP SOP network to calculate the luminance values. These values where then used to determine how much to rotate the thousands of mirrors to form the final animation.
