This film is the output of a two year part time Masters I studied at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, part of Dundee University.

I have used my research into the physics of the movement of light to produce a short film, which is an artistic representation of this invisible world of light that flows around us. With the wealth of work being conducted into the understanding of light by the likes of Dr Maria Ana Cataluna here at Dundee and Ramesh Raskar based at MIT in Boston, there is more and more interest in seeing the physical attributes of light. To achieve the results desired I also developed a technique of controlling the organic movement of computer-generated particles by using hidden control clouds that have influence over the visible particle systems. This allowed for large-scale simulations to be built in the ICE particle world within the Softimage software environment rapidly, and fine-tuned with the traditional node based controllers.
