We’re entranced by this phantasmagorical video created by designers Alexa Sirbu and Lukas Vojir with music by Zelig Sound. Entitled “flow/er“, the experimental CG short barely lasts 30 seconds, but that’s one of the amazing things about dreams. While in the mind of the dreamer they might feel as though they go on forever, as far as our brains are concerned they’re over in a flash.
Watch as swirling seas of dark particles collide to form dusky ornamental flowers that bloom until they burst into lush fractal formations. These organic forms and transmutations feel like animated versions of some of the wearable sculptures created by fashion designer Iris van Herpen.
From the artists: “In nature, it is often the simplest rules that lead to forming the most complex, beautiful forms. flow/er is a visual poem that observes this through a design lens, combining our fascination with organic, raw aesthetics with foreign graphic forms. We observe natural laws take shape in a strange dance of meticulous choreography clashing with violent forces of nature.”
