Synthesize

Synthesize by Tom Di Stasio, is a fantastical abstract piece depicting the birth of a jellyfish and its ascension through the unknown, yet its obscurity opens it up for interpretation. The project was based around using music to drive a narrative, my aim being to create an animated piece that represented these two mediums harmoniously. From a technical perspective it was a way for me to delve deeper into areas that I hadn’t really explored, such as procedural animation and custom shaders. Inspired by bioluminescence and the kinematics of underwater life, I wanted to create an animation that was in essence, beautiful.
