Australian digital artist David McLeod creates amazing animations and renderings of moving particles trapped within invisible spheres or cubes. “I think we all find the flocking behavior as seen in a school of fish or flock of birds a little hypnotic,” he shares with Colossal. “The Colourflow pieces are a set of motion experiments inspired by this type of collective motion. I set out to explore different properties of the flocking motion and how to break apart and then collect the group in ways that felt organic.” McLeod pushes the surreal quality of each pieces even further by creating iridescent treatments and various color changing filters.
