Prix Ars Electronica winner and Lumen Prize finalist Glenn Marshall releases Star Girl, the next in his series of code generated 3D particle sculptures.
This is an experimental digital work created using programming code to simulate mathematical and scientific models of particle collisions to create 3D sculptural forms.
It also features in an animated video inspired by the Radiohead track 'Codex',

This is what could be called ‘emergent art’, in that there are no preconceptions of the final result, but rather reliance on the unexpected results of a complicated simulation system using natural forces to create the final piece.
In this piece, the inspiration came from how the female form has been a key subject in the history and evolution of art, from the renaissance to the modern era, and here presented as an example in the digital era.
Star Girl is part of a series created with the same techniques, and is also a full animation in itself. You can view the animation here -
