Birth of Psyche
Major: Computer Graphics Technology
Genre/Medium: Digital 3D Animation: SideFX Houdini
About the work: One of the mysteries of Psyche that I find most compelling is how it came to be in the first place. My personal favorite hypothesis of Psyche’s origin is that it could be core material from a planetary collision. After watching simulations of colliding planetary bodies, I’ve become fascinated by their fluid-like behavior. This piece is an artistic animation inspired by scientific simulations I have seen.
