This abstract animation is made up by a series of synthetic sequences, obtained with the use of moving masks that reveal the textures beneath. A custom software was written in order to obtain the masks’ shapes and control them, and to allow the editing of the sequences.
An interactive version of this animation enables the user to control the animated sequences with the computer keyboard: each sequence corresponds to a key. The results are therefore different each time, and one can create an interactive animation in real time, playing it with the keyboard: the parallel with the musical approach is obvious. It is also possible to save the animation and play it later on.
Some of the sequences were conceived by Dagmar Trinks.
