Basic idea here is this:

1) Take the captured data from the oil pastel drawing from so long ago (bit.ly/OilPastel01).

2) Have each captured point add to a basic height value for a cube. Make each captured point's velocity turn the cube.

Now I gotta make this look good. Basic structure is in place, though it's entirely too dense right now. Want to create some hi-res cinematic stills out of this.

See some in-progress stills on my site (todaycreate.com/2010/05/02/motion-generated-cityscape).

Music is Prefuse 73 "Awakening to a....." -- though it has nothing to do with what's going on in the video.
