Graphics, animation, particle and physics, shading and glsl, rendering, programming, light control (dmx), sound modulation (a bridge with Ableton Live).
The main challenge was to render generative and 360° seamless graphic texture .
Bike's data flow is process individuality and as a group to modulate different generator, creating different levels of graphics, set according the main timeline.
A sequence of 240s that drive the rise of the energy until the climax. The cube becomes pure energy, lighting up the statue (Louis XIV) and a burst of fireworks to reward our riders.
Visual elements has been designed to fit the optical properties of the magic cube : light scattering, mapping, resolution, glowing....
