I was drawn to this video because of my enthusiasm for abstract animation. Imagine my delight and surprise then when I discovered these elegant wave forms created by artist Daniel Palacios were not CGI at all!
"A long piece of rope generates 3D waves floating in space by the physical action of its movement: the rope which creates the visual waves also simultaneously creates the sound by cutting through the air, making up a single element.
The installation is affected by those who watch it. When the audience moves around it they influence the movements of the rope, generating visual and acoustic sound waves from harmonic patterns to complex ones."
