This project was initiated out of curiosity for organic organisms. This first attempt of the experiment is a good tryout for creating even more visuals that lean towards medical/ science art.
FLUX is life..
Moving molecules through a metabolic pathway. It shows comparably, a micro analysis within the human body; as if you're traveling in a certain part of the body encountering molecular structures and fibrin networks.
In this project I dedicated myself to the conceptual design, researched on the appearance of the robot and the unveiling of the mechanical body parts. And finally set up ways to model, rig and animate the character.
In a testing room, power cables leave their docking system and reach a connecting-core. A machinery gets activated and detailed parts start revealing themselves. While activities are being monitored, the ‘Testtype 888’ robot slowly comes to life.

This is a small animation i did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing.
