Primitive

I fell into a rabbit hole perusing Michael Fogleman’s awesome projects: the one which really caught my eye is Primitive which reconstructs images using primitive shapes. It’s implemented with a whole lot of parameters to play with, the results are captivating.

I scripted a way to have it infuse its magic into a short movie. I really love the results.
