I do quite a lot of tests and experiments some come from proof of concept ideas at work, some are more experiments and learning practices – but they often don’t have a proper final form. So now I’m making a more sustained effort to render these off and post them up so they don’t get lost for ever.

So to start here is an experiment with strands – I’ve done a fair amount before but only in the last few months am I becoming to understand them more fully and build them from scratch, which is very powerful and gives you a lot of freedom.

This is a render looking straight down (clearer at the end when they all face upwards and just look like points) and the strands are all single straight lines. Moving around based on various different methods of control, all procedural.
