< Crystal Harmony >
Short Animated Film, a TouchDesigner Adventure

"The pattern of order/disorder is the singular dynamic force which has its effect upon both our visual and aural perceptions.
Evolution to and from greater and lesser complexity - this is the force of harmony that gives shape to time."
John Whitney, "Digital Harmony".

Inspired by the work of John Whitney, Crystal Harmony is a short film the explores order and chaos in harmonic arrangements.
A diligent swarm of romboidal elements orderly choreograph circular patterns, until the emergence of a crystal entity brings to life an apparent chaos in the system.

Recommended: Good speakers and a moment of relaxation.
