Particle Dreams

Particle Dreams 1988

Dream sequences created using 3D particle systems techniques.

A Connection Machine CM-2 computer was used to perform physical simulations on thousands of particles simultaneously, one processor for each particle.

Order from Chaos

The idea for this part of the story started on a day when there was really heavy rain hitting the roof window at my old flat.
