'Flight Forms' revisits early 90's animation ideas in architecture in the Robotic Simulation environment of Sci-Arc. Inspired Muybridges studies, moving bodies in space our intitial starting point was a 'drone' that can independently fly. Based on its motion, nature of behaviour, momentum we have created a 3d visual catalogue, a motion libarary. This collection of motion than got placed in the robotic simulation environment where the flight path were used in controlled way to generate forms. Using multiple film and masking tricks the drones were populated to formations operating in sychronous flight...
