The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries . All action takes place around NASA's Space Sciences Laboratories, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries . Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers' produced by fleeting electrons . Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
In the incredibly dense yet invisible world of the cytoplasm in biological cells, complex interactions can be thought of as a playful dance between macromolecules, minerals, ions and proteins.These cytoplasmic playgrounds are reimagined using dynamic particle systems that play out and evolve differently each time, mimicking stochastic processes in nature. This video shows recorded snapshots taken from these computational outbursts. Sound was created using granular synthesis techniques.

The video was part of the Playgrounds 2012 opening titles where my collaborators and I set out to create otherworldly interpretations of playgrounds: vimeo.com/54141579
We asked a group of talented 3D artists in Shanghai to create a short animation to express their impression of chemical structures. This animation also features an original music composed by Lisa Elisabeth.
