Part of Forms, an interactive animation project inspired by, among others, photographer Eadweard Muybridge (who proved that a trotting horse lifts all of its hooves off the ground simultaneously), it was created using footage of Commonwealth Games competitors, sophisticated software and 3D technology – plus a load of collaborators. Which probably requires more effort than detonating a bunch of drinking straws. But is possibly less fun.
'Forms' was created by a whole team: Quayola & Memo Akten (artists), Nexus Interactive Arts (production company), Beccy McCray (producer), Jo Bierton (production manager), Matthias Kispert (sound design), Maxime Causeret (Houdini developer), Raffael F J Ziegler (3D animator), Eoin Coughlan, Katie Parnell, and Mark Davies (3D tracking).
