F5 2011 RE:PLAY Film Festival. Inductance from Physalia Studio on Vimeo.
“Happy” was the theme we were given by the organizers for this year's F5 Re:Play Fest, held in April in NYC, to create this edition's pieces, probably the hardest thing to convey in any artistic expression. After a good deal of introspection, and teaming up with awesome motion graphics artist Gerardo del Hierro, we decided that happy wasn't happy for Physalia unless pliers, microchips and a bit of soldering were involved, and with this idea we resolved to create the happiest machine Physalia has built to date."
I love the final effect, what fun. It reminds me of a lava lamp. I wonder whether it's possible to then choreograph different color balls given that they appear to have chips in them.
