1194D is originally a tweak of 115C8 (vimeo.com/45569702), one of my "Algorithmic Creature" series based on recursive triangle subdivision. The idea and complexity of the work started to go beyond the initial expectation after I decided to experiment with multiple "creatures" co-existing within the environment. So I created this grid with regular tetrahedron as its unit cell, put these triangle-based "creatures" into this environment and tested their mutation and combination in various ways.
The entire work is programmed and generated in Processing, with a few scenes using some blur and blend modes in Premiere during composition stage.
The soundtrack is "mac os and windows (re:interpretation)" by + (freemusicarchive.org/music/_2810/FugaYK/mac_os_and_windows_reinterpretation).
