Light

Light

The first exoplanet was discovered in 1992 by Prof. Aleksander Wolszczan. Until today, we have confirmed existence of over 2000 planets in our galaxy. One in five Sun-like stars have an Earth-like planet in its habitable zone. There’s about 11 billion Earth-like planets in our galaxy.

Whatever you imagined, might take place on one of them.

Light combines imagery of an alien planet with dance performance interwoven in a minimalistic narrative form to convey the notion of light as a primary origin of all life in the Universe.

The imagery of the planet was created using a generative approach using distance estimation raytracing and custom software. No manual modelling has been done – everything you see is a result of creative coding and was created procedurally.
