A deviant cg character, defying any laws of character animation. Absolutely no keyframes were used to constrain the livelyhood of this polygon being.
Very erratic sound driven polygonal objects that have a lot of personality. It is almost disturbing how sudden yet restrained the movement is. I could produce something sound driven like this without using keyframes by using the sound effector within the mograph module in cinema 4D. I also like the bizarre boolean cuts (one object intersecting the other) that get more and more intense as the sound gets more dynamic.
Here is another video from Zeitguised that features similar techniques and aesthetics:
A deviant cg character, defying any laws of character animation.
Piece for Group exhibition ‘Room with a Zoo’ by iamstatic, Toronto, Canada @ Resistor Gallery. The concept was to create an animated character that shows behaviour not attributed to mimicking animals or people, or any traditional character animation technique (eg. disney) that is merely reiterated with cg. We were looking for methods that reflected the specific qualities of working with digital means. It features a technique where we connected polygon geometries to a bone system intentionally ‘wrong’ to distort them in a complex and dense manner. It also connects particles with spring dynamics and volumetrics.
It makes you very aware that you are looking in on the object by placing the fence directly in front of the camera. Once again it is very strange and unnerving in both form and movement. I particularly like the subtle 'plants' that make up it's only surroundings within it's cage.
