About Project Haze
Initially inspired by a beautiful coincidence, I discovered this visual art when I captured some clips from a micro-world through my camera in late January 2020. After the first exploration, Project Haze was born.
The original footages are neither 3D-animated nor code-based but utilize optics and other principles of physics and are later partly animated with special effects. But they contain great randomness.
To achieve certain results and effects I desire, such as longer duration, speed control, changeable color, resolution improvement, stretching, and shrinking, I've spent months delving into a lot of research and tests. Eventually, I developed several approaches and had more control. Now it turns out to be an infinite project with a myriad of possibilities that I could spend my whole life on.
Derived Installation Art "Aurora"
Another beautiful coincidence. I discovered and created this derived installation art when I tested some display solutions for Project Haze. I name it "Aurora".
