A Nondescript Character Sheds Suits of Fur, Bubbling Liquids, and Gnarly Wood in Hypnotic CGI Animation

July 27, 2020

From gurgling liquids to crackling fire to rainbow-colored fur, a range of materials envelop an indistinct figure in Universal Everything’s new animation. “Transfiguration” follows a central character as it wades across the screen wearing full-coverage suits that evolve with each step. Despite the mesmerizing changes in appearance, the figure never walks farther than mid-frame.

To create this new, CGI animation, Universal Everything (previously) updated a similar piece from 2011. The United Kingdom-based art and design studio engages in a wide range of digital projects, which you can find on Vimeo and Instagram.
