Dynamic Heights / Canvas

Dynamic Heights is a 1 minute video generated by custom software.
Geometry is calculated by recursive divisions, meaning that each new shape relates to the previous existing ones. After the initial geometry is created the system starts moving, all shapes react to each other and fit their sizes to their neighbours. The program has the dimensions of the Canvas-installation as an input and generates a complex 3D-model per frame. These models are then rendered by a photorealistic path-tracing engine. The obtained lights and shadows emphasizes the geometry.
The video was on regular display at Tivoli Vredenburg, Utrecht.
