Blog By Nathaniel Ainley — Sep 24 2015 GIF and screencaps by the author, via Algorithmic animals become more-than-human in Raven Kwok’s new music video for Monstercat imprint Karma Fields’ “Skyline.” The visuals were inspired by mathematical model, the Voronoi tessellation, which Kwok describes as being at the heart of the video’s generative visual patterns. Though nothing new to computational artists—”Artists like Robert Hodgin, Diana Lange, Frederik Vanhoutte, Jon McCormack, Clint Fulkerson and many more have applied this model into their works in the past” Kwok tells The Creators Project—the use of the mathematical model often used in urban planning is meant to be viewed in terms of colliding planes. “Considering the visual pattern as top view of a city while the song ‘Skyline’ as side view of a city, we might have just built another city,” writes Kwok.
