South Korean artist Minha Yang has combined super slo-mo video footage with C++ (OpenFrameWorks) mathematic and physical algorithms for Running Women. The final piece is a hypnotic, smokey mirage. Yang explains the creative process behind it:
Running Women is the artwork made of numerous motion vectors that is generated by mathematical and physical algorithms. The moving image was taken by high speed camera and transformed into 129,600 vectors. These vectors are capable of controlling 2 million lines containing color characteristic values of rasterized moving images.
These regenerating and recombining processes applied exquisite visual modifications to the original video. The length of original video is 5 minutes long, and it is produced in 4K and 8K resolutions.
