Experience body vibrations of candy colored psychedelic sound rippling through an endless crystal universe. Crystal Vibes utilizes the cutting edge of spatial 3D audio, full-body 'Synesthesia Suit' vibro-tactile stimulation, and sound visualization that maps sound and light based on the science of the human senses, to push the frontiers of technology-mediated sensory experience in virtual reality. With the project's predecessor described as “transcendent” and “like traveling through a psychedelic kaleidoscope” (Forbes 2016), this piece ups the ante with music from producer Ott. and is all-new for a trippier Sundance Film Festival and New Frontier 2017.
Zero One is a code-based generative video commissioned by Zero One Technology Festival 2018 (zeroone-tech.com/) in Shenzhen, PR China. In this project, I collaborate with L.A. based producer / music technologist Mike Gao (soundcloud.com/mikegao).
This project consists of multiple interlinked generative systems, each of which has its customized features, but collectively share the core concept of an evolving elementary cellular automaton.
The entire video is programmed and generated using Processing with minor edits in Premiere during composition.
Recently because of working as a full-time employee, I didn't have this chance to make highly-detailed CG artworks(except the Warrior dog ) and I just had a couple of hours per day right after arriving home! This video is a compilation of all the videos I've made in recent months in my spare time!
Mostly done with Maya and Arnold Renderer!
Hope you like it!
