Bloom - By Ana Garmendia
We belong to a generation in which the digital world has evolved to the point that it has become a part of our daily lives. Now it is natural for us. "Bloom" symbolizes the relationship between nature and the abstract digital world.
Inspired by flowers. A flower that blooms for the first time. A new and fresh beginning.
Connecting with nature is really important because it gives us a break from things. Technology has become an essential part of our lives, in every way. This changes are making people tend to take nature for granted. Nature has always been the most widely used source of inspiration. It gives us peace. While technology usage has been linked to adverse mental health, studies show that spending time in nature have positive effects on physical and psychological health. These type of images and simulations have been designed to have the same effect on people.
Made with Maya nCloth using uniform and turbulence fields.
This is my first VFX project. So I can tell I am already blooming in this world. Too much of anything is not a good thing. I always try to find inspiration in nature as a way to escape from digital world.
