Fishscape
Description
--
'Fishscape' is about the reinterpretation of a physical fish space into a digital one where seemingly simple motion is transformed into an orchestrated landscape of hues that begins to visually express a certain aesthetic of shape and movement. The ordinary twists and turns of goldfishes are converted into a disply of color and light that permeates the screen only for that brief moment in time... until they swim by again. Through a continuous captured video stream of goldfishes swimming about, a real-time 3D landscape is created to reflect their existence through an ever increasing buildup of arrangement of color layers. These color layers reflect a one to one correlation with the fishes' every movement at that particular instance in time. Over time, as new movements in the form of color eclipse the gradually fading 'older' colors, this constantly changing arrangments not only produces an evloving color composition but also serves as a brief recorded of movements passed.
