3D Field Flow Reza Processing

3D Field Flow

April 17, 2010

3D Field Flow is an exploration of invisible space, fluid flow, thermodynamics and dynamical systems. Empty space surrounds us, however is this space really empty? The space around us is governed by the rules of thermodynamics and physics and shows some interesting behavior when simulated and visualized in 3D.

Organic SuperShapes

January 31, 2010

Recently, I have been exploring SuperShapes, which are organic shapes that are rendered by evaluating the superformula with different parameters. This formula creates some beautiful and very organic shapes that can be used in other graphics to make a dynamic graphic composition (either interactive or static). Doing this in Matlab or Mathematica is interesting, but I wanted to make something a little more interactive, minimal and fun to play with so I designed a application that can be used to create these shapes and render an image of them at a super high resolution.

A Drifting Up

This is an audio-reactive algorithmic visual art piece that uses the concept of charged particles and flocking to simulate a organism that is alive and composed of micro-organisms. The movement is rather pleasing thus I decided to exhibit the algorithm in a rather catchy video art fashion. Enjoy.
