Taking the microscope imagery as a starting point, i wanted to explore the kind of alien terrain depicted in a virtual environment. the piece starts with you falling towards a landscape as the terrain changes; stars spin wildly in the background and this could be millenia. When you hit the land, you begin spiralling down through the rock and empty into a seemingly undersea/cave, eventually finding yourself in a lava filled cavern. The idea is to move from the relatively organic outwards down into a more geometric and abstract interior, filled with particle systems and activities as active as the weather and indicative of the geological forces at play. These are the rough beginnings to the piece.
