Energy Flow

Energy Flow


A filmic dream rush of paintings in motion: Energy Flow is an immersive film experience that is unique every time it is played, exploring the complexity of how things are connected in our lives today - the fragile equilibrium between physical, political, and cultural tensions.

Update coming 17/12/12: Includes higher resolution streaming and Nexus 7 performance improvements.

ENERGY FLOW
-------------------
Never before has our world been shaken up by such a multiplicity of fundamental shifts: from the Arab Spring to the London Riots, from the financial crisis to the groundbreaking research at CERN institute. With Energy Flow, FIELD presents a close-up study of 10 animated stories inspired by these shifts.

Energy Flow observes the instinct-driven movements of wild animals; a memory of anarchy and chaos on our streets; games of chance symbolising the mathematical chaos that holds our universe together; and much more. The lush and powerful animations pay tribute to contemporary painting as well as the new aesthetic of today's science and technology.

-------------------------------------------------------------
DIGITAL STORYTELLING - ALGORITHMIC FILMS AND MUSIC
-------------------------------------------------------------
The bespoke algorithmic system of Energy Flow interlinks the stories into countless unique film experiences. From a quick dream rush to a meditative impression, each iteration of Energy Flow presents a different abstract narrative full of crosslinks and connotations; reflecting that there is never just one perspective on our complex world.

FIELD collaborated with German sound artist David Kamp to drive the sound and music composition from the same system, creating a one-off soundtrack blending experimental electronica with classical instruments for each iteration of Energy Flow.

Where's the story Maybe I am too literal. This is supposed to be 10 stories but I havn't found one. Lots of interesting images synced to music. App stops frequently but this may be due to my slow Internet connection. The interface needs work. At the end of a section the screen goes black and stays black. You have to hit the back button where you are given the option to continue. Hitting the back button gets you to play. Tapping it a third time exits the app. Not very elegant.

Great Start I've only "spun" through a few, but vivid and inventive they were....I'll give it five stars if, while watching, I'm moved to experiencing, which means they've got me emotionally.

Fraudulent.... All this app does is link you to an online video feed..consumes unnecessary space on your phone/tablet..uninstalled

Energy flow. Disjointed series of videos. Interesting concept, but needs better execution. You can get better results by going to YouTube and watching Farbrausch or Aiur videos. Or any others that have great music synced to excellent CG video.
