Forms: Generative Animation of the 2012 Olympics

Forms Installation at the National Media Museum from Nexus Productions on Vimeo.

‘Forms’ is a multiscreen digital artwork commissioned by the National Media Museum for the exhibition In the Blink of an Eye: Media and Movement, which is part of the Cultural Olympiad programme. Forms responds to the human body in motion. It focuses exclusively on the mechanics of movement, using footage of world-class athletes to illustrate human movement at the extremes of perfection. Videos of athletes were processed through custom software to create evolving abstract forms that explore the relationships between the human body and its movements through time and space.

This generative animation and interactive installation will display at the Museum from 9 March – 2 September.
