This is an edit of some early tests for the Fragmentations project.
In my animation work, I often use After Effects to distort reality until it is broken down into lights and patterns. I decided to take this technique a step further and bring it into real-time.
In Fragmentations, I create Processing sketches that break down a live web-cam feed into abstract representations. I then film the result through distorting mediums such as glass vessels filled with various translucent liquids. The final product is a cycle of reality, transformed by technology, transformed by reality.
Below are video documentations of the actual Processing sketches. The files can be downloaded from Github: https://github.com/yparshina/fragmentations
