Here’s a lovely bit of experimental visual goodness from Swedish motion designer Anton Woll Söder in collaboration with CypherAudio. Söder shares that the animation began as an exercise to learn more about VFX software Houdini and slowly evolved into the clip you see here. In recent years, the rapid evolution of PCs and the development of software like Houdini and Cinema 4D has created new possibilities for intricate particle-based animations. Prime examples include clips seen previously on Colossal like Cycle and the dance piece from the AICP Awards. You can see more of Söder’s visual effects work on Behance. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
