Electric Fields is a series of three software-generated animations that blend virtual worlds and abstract painting. Each animation embarks on a slow, meandering trip through an infinite world filled with colorful software-generated forms. Morphing and expanding, the gesture-like forms simultaneously appear as brush strokes and fields of digital information. Virtual cameras, cartesian perspective, parallax and atmospheric perspective elicit the sensation of floating through a painterly environment, while a lush electronic soundtrack by musician Jefre Cantu-Ledesma echoes throughout.
